Main How to Image

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Black top folding card blank (8 1/4 x 5 3/4")

Gossip glitter cardstock : Garnet (8 1/4 x 4 3/4")

White cardstock ( 8 1/4 x 4 1/4")

Stamps from Imala Grrr 

Sentiment from Possibility Stamp and Die Collection

Memento Ink Pad: Tuxedo Black

Gossip Alcohol Markers: 60 collection

Glossy Accents

Eureka 101

How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the stamp in the Memento and stamp the image just off the top edge of the white cardstock. 

Ink it up again and stamp just the floral part, along the bottom edge of the white cardstock. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the sentiment stamp, from the Possibility stamp and die set, in the Memento, and stamp in the centre of your design. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Using a ruler and a black alcohol marker, draw a line 1/2" in from the sides of the cardstock, between the top and bottom stamped images. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Using an orange alcohol marker (I used Gossip Orange YR23), colour around the images using the pointillism technique. You use "dots" to create colour, using more dots around the edges of the stamped images, fading out to less dots as you move away from it. You can also create trails of dots to add effect to your design. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Colour in the Tiger's eye using the same Orange marker. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Mat your artwork on to the Gossip glitter cardstock, adhering it flush top and bottom, with an equal gap left down both sides. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Mat this on to your top folding card blank, adhering it flush top and bottom, with an equal gap left down both sides. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Apply the Glossy Accents to the Tiger's eye and nose, to create extra dimension.
