How To Guide - Step 1

Lay the Secret Garden stencil off the right hand edge of your DL card blank. 

Use your blending brushes to blend the Outremer and Vervaine inks through the stencil, creating a darker colour around the edge and blending out to nothing, towards the centre. 

Splatter some water on to the ink, wait a few seconds, then mop up the excess water with a paper towel. 

Remove the stencil and dry off your work.
