How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the Imala Rickety House, with the Onyx Black Versafine and stamp off the left hand edge of your stamped, decorative paper. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Colour in areas of the Rickety House with your white oil pencil, which will draw your eye in to the image against the dark, patterned background.

Use the white gel pen to accentuate accents and highlights, where the Moon may be shining down on the house. 

Set to one side.

How To Guide - Step 4

Wipe over the vellum panel with your anti-static bag, before inking our fabulous Spell On You lady, with the WOW embossing ink.

Apply the white embossing powder over your sticky stamped image then, having got your heat tool hot, heat set the powder. As you are working on vellum, make sure you move the heat tool as soon as the powder starts to turn, to minimise warping your vellum and burning the powder. 

Tear down both vertical edges of the vellum, following the shape of your embossed lady, as shown here.  

How To Guide - Step 5

Place the embossed vellum to the right of your stamped background. Tuck the excess vellum over the top and bottom of the paper and secure on the reverse, with the double sided adhesive tape or a tape runner. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere on to the white card, trimmed to 7 1/2 x 5".

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere on to the front of your black card blank and set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Wipe over the black card (3 1/2 x 2 1/2") with your anti-static bag.

Ink up the sentiment stamp with the WOW embossing ink and stamp on to the card.

Cover with the white embossing powder and once your heat tool is hot, heat set the powder. 

You can trim down the black card as required, then draw a decorative, wiggly frame around it with your white gel pen. 

How To Guide - Step 9

To finish, adhere the sentiment in the top left corner of your card.
