How To Guide - Step 1

Apply masking tape around the edges of the Carta card, to create a panel as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Spray the masked panel liberally with water.

Apply a little of each of the Premium inks on to your glass mat, then pick up each colour, one at a time and pounce the ink randomly in to the panel, allowing the ink to do it's own thing. You can add more ink, until you are happy with your background. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Splatter drops of water over the background, wait a few seconds before dabbing the excess water off with a paper towel, then dry off the inks with a quick blast from your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Lay the Cascading Numbers stencil over your background, then randomly blend the Magenta with your blending tool. 

Give the ink a quick blast with the heat tool, to dry it off. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Add splatters of the White Lace Confetti ink and the Golden Shimmer Pearl Mist, over your background. If possible allow them to dry naturally, to give a more intense effect. 

However, ensure the background is completely dry before proceeding to the next step.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Carefully remove the masking tape, to reveal your inky panel.

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the sentiment stamp with the Versafine and stamp in the bottom left corner of the inky panel.
