How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up Imala Waterside with the Surfboard. Spritz with water and stamp on to the white card (7 x 5"). Spritz the stamped image with water, allowing the ink to move/bleed, before mopping up the excess, with a paper towel. DO NOT MOVE YOUR STAMP OR CARD but blast it quickly with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Reink the stamp with Surfboard and stamp back over your "loose" image, thus redefining details within the image. Blast the ink with your heat tool. 

Trim your card down to the size of the stamped image (6 3/4 x 4 1/4").  

How To Guide - Step 3

Apply a little of the Magenta to your craft mat, add water and loosely paint the sky. You can dab areas of the wet paint with a paper towel, to give the effect of wispy clouds. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Splatter drops of water in the sky, wait a few seconds, then mop up the excess water and give your artwork a quick blast with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Using the diluted Magenta ink, paint hints of the pink sky, reflected in the water. 

Allow your artwork to completely dry or blast with heat tool, to speed it up.

Adhere your artwork on to the black card (7 x 4 1/2").
