How To Guide - Step 1

Smoosh a little of the Surfboard on to your craft mat and spritz it with the Pearlywinks Glitter Pearl Mist.

Pick up the ink on to the white card, cut to 7 1/4 x 4 3/4". 

Allow to dry, or blast it off with your heat tool, if you're impatient like me!!

How To Guide - Step 2

Tear off random strips from the washi tapes and adhere vertically and horizontally, on to your inky background. 

Set to one side. 


How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the largest and smallest "B" stamps, from Just Because Collection, with the Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

Stamp on to the super smooth white card.

Having placed a sheet of copy paper under your stamped card, colour in your images with your Gossip Alcohol pens. NB: Alcohol pens bleed through the card and could stain your work surface, hence placing copy paper underneath.  

Use the coordinating dies to cut them out. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Adhere the largest die cut "B" centre top, of your inky background. 

How To Guide - Step 5

First decide which add-on stamped sentiment you will be using, before adhereing the smaller die cut "B" with a foam pad, in the appropriate position, allowing space for your sentiment. 

NB: If you're using deep foam pads, it may be better for you to stamp your add-on sentiment first and then adhere the die cut letter in place. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up your chosen sentiment stamp with the Onyx Black Versafine and stamp in position, alongside your die cut letter. You can use the Memento, but I prefer the crisper image produced with Versafine ink. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Once dry, adhere your artwork on to the navy, pearlised cardstock. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere to the front of your top folding, grey card blank, to finish.
