How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the Urban Romance stamp with the Salvaged Patina Oxide and spritz with water.

Stamp on to the white card (7 1/4 x 4 3/4") then sptitz your stamped image. Allow the ink to bleed, as required, then mop up any excess ink/water with a paper towel. You can repeat this step several times, until you are happy with the effect. 

Give your artwork a quick blast with the heat tool but DO NOT MOVE THE CARD OR STAMP. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Reink the stamp randomly, with the Smoky Grey Versafine and stamp over your stamped artwork. This adds defintion to your loosely stamped image.

Ink up this floral stamp from the Imala Wildflower set, with the Salvaged Patina and stamp it coming down, from the top left corner of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Wipe the torn vellum panel with your anti-static bag. Position it down the left side of your artwork, as a guide, then line up the Wildflower stamp with the stamped image underneath, but placed across the vellum. 

Holding the stamp roughly in place, position both the vellum and stamp in your Eureka, ink up the stamp with the WOW embossing ink and stamp that section of the floral image, on to the vellum. Cover with the white embossing powder and once your heat tool is hot, heat set the powder. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Line up the embossed image on the vellum with the stamped image on your artwork. Fold over the ends of the vellum, top and bottom and secure on the reverse of the card, with double-sided tape.
