How To Guide - Step 1

Remove this decorative paper from the Imala Collage Paper Pad and tear to approx 8 x 5 1/2" ( so it will sit nicely on your card blank). 

How To Guide - Step 2

Pop some white Gesso on to your glass mat, then use a brayer, or a dry flat paint brush, to randomly apply it over the decorative paper. This pushes the vibrant design back, allowing your focal image to pop. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Randomly ink up the Imala Jumbled Up, with the Onyx Black Versafine. Hold the stamp in your hand and randomly stamp on to the gessoed paper, thus creating a distressed effect. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up our gorgeous Flower Power girl with the Versafine and stamp just off the bottom left of your background. Set aside to dry. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Reink her and stamp on to the white card, cut to 7 x 5".

Cut her out, setting the remaining white card to one side for the next step. 

Paint her using your watercolour paints and set aside to dry. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Reink the flower in her hair and stamp twice, on to the white card you set aside. 

Cut around the flowers, then paint with your watercolours. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere your painted image over the top of the stamped image, on the decorative paper, tearing off any overhang. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere on to your pink card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your florals to the bottom right of your lady, using foam pads, for added dimension. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the sentiment stamp with the Versafine and stamp on to the white card (3 x 2").

Once the ink is dry, tear around your sentiment. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Adhere your sentiment on to your card, so its tucked just under the flowers. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Finally, use a white gel pen to add accents and highlights to your artwork.
