How To Guide - Step 1

Apply a little of the Sherbet, Bittersweet, Magenta and Redwood inks on to your glass mat and add water. 

Using your Sunflower stamp as a rough placement guide, drop the inks roughly where the flower heads will be stamped. Dont be precise, add water and allow the inks to move and bleed in to each other, whilst mopping up any excess with a paper towel. The idea is to create a loose, watercolour effect.

Bllast the ink dry before proceeding to the next step.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Repeat the same process but this time using the Hedgerow and Limeade, where the leaves and foliage will be stamped. Dry off the inks when you're happy with the effect. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the Sunflower stamp with the Midnight hybrid and stamp onto your inky artwork. Remember you are looking for a loose, watercolour effect so don't try to line it up perfectly! 

How To Guide - Step 4

Apply the Black Soot Distress ink on to your glass mat, add water and splatter your artwork! I like lots of splats but you can do as many, or as a few as you like. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Tear off strips of the Journal Notes washi tape and adhere across the bottom left and down the top right. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the sentiment with the Midnight ink and stamp across the bottom, right of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere your artwork on to your black card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Finish off by adding yellow, adhesive enamel dots on to your artwork.
