How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up the Classic Frame stamp with the Midnight Hybrid ink pad and stamp on to your masking sheet or copy paper, then cut out. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place your mask just off the left edge of the white card, cut to 8 x 5 1/2". 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use your premium dye ink pads to ink up the solid stamp from the Celebrate Today Stamp Collection. Spritz the stamp with water, then stamp on to your card so the image stamps on to the right hand side of the frame mask. You can apply one colour at a time, spritz and then stamp or, like me, you can apply them together, allowing them to fuse and blend, for a more arty, watercolour effect.   

Blast the ink with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up the coordinating detailed stamp with Midnight and stamp over your solid image. These are "loose" lamination images, so they are not designed to line up perfectly. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Apply a little of the Heather and Limeade on to your glass mat, spritz with water and splatter over your artwork. I love lots of splats but the choice is yours!! 


How To Guide - Step 6

Dry the ink before carefully removing the mask. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Reink the Classic Frame with the Midnight and stamp within the masked off area, on your artwork. 

Ink up the sentiment from the Celebrate Today set, with Midnight and stamp within the centre of your frame. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the sentiments from the Classic Frame set with Midnight and stamp within the banners, as seen here.

Dry the ink then adhere to your black card blank, to finish.
