How To Guide - Step 1

Ink up this stamp with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp on to the masking sheet or copy paper, then fussy cut, keeping as close to the lines as possible. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place your mask just off the right hand edge of your white, DL card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up this beautiful stamp from the Wildflower set, with the Heather ink, spritz lightly with water and stamp around the left side and slightly overlapping, our mask. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Whilst the ink is still wet, use a paint brush to pull out the ink to create a loose, watercolour effect. You can go in and add a little more ink, to intensify areas, thus creating depth and dimension. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Re-ink the Wildflower stamp with the Heather, spritz and stamp in the top right corner. Again, draw the wet ink out with a paint brush. 


How To Guide - Step 6

Carefully remove your mask before drying the ink with a heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Re-ink our rock girl with the Midnight and stamp within the masked off area. 

How To Guide - Step 8

You want to re-ink the stamp with Midnight but this time we are just inking up the "Skull", within the image. Dab off any ink you get on other areas of the stamp, with a paper towel but don't worry if you miss any! The idea is to give a distressed, textured look to your artwork. Stamp the skull randomly on to the floral images on your card, as many times as you wish, until you are happy with the result! 

Set your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Ink up the sentiment stamp with the Cotton pigment ink and stamp on to the black card. Pigment ink is very slow drying, so best blast it dry with your heat tool. 

I wanted to trim my sentiment at a jaunty angle, but you can trim it flush if you prefer. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere your sentiment in the top left corner of your card. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Apply a tiny bit of the Heather on to your glass mat, add water and paint her lips and eye shadow, as required, to finish your card.
