How To Guide - Step 1

Place the white card, cut to 7 3/4 x 3 3/4", in landscape view, then swipe your no-line ink pad across the card, to create a subtle background. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the script and brickwork stamps, from the Beautiful Notes set, with the no-line ink pad and stamp randomly over your background. The idea is to create a distressed, subtle background for your main focal images.

Dry the ink ready for the next step.

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up one of the solid leaf stamps, from the Keep Exploring set, with the Limeade.

Spritz the stamp with water, then stamp just to the left, of the centre of your background. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up a bigger solid leaf stamp with Heather, spritz with water and stamp in the centre, just connecting it with the first stamped image. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Reink the first solid leaf stamp, this time with Tiffany. Spritz with water and stamp to the right of the centre leaf, again just connecting the 2 images, to create fluidity to your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the coordinating detailed stamps, one at a time, with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp over your solid images. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up the detailed leafy stamp with Midnight and stamp randomly around your artwork, ensuring you take some of the images off the edge of the card. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Apply a little of each of the Premium Dye inks to your glass mat. Spritz with water and splatter over your artwork, as required. I like lots of splats but the choice is yours!!

How To Guide - Step 9

Ink the sentiment stamp with Midnight and stamp through the bottom left, of your artwork. 


How To Guide - Step 10

Once the splats are dry, adhere your artwork on to your DL card blank, to finish.
