How To Guide - Step 1

Using a blending brush, blend Limeade around your card, leaving an area in the centre clear.

Now blend Hedgerow around the card but not blending quite so far in to the centre. Finally blend Tiffany just around the outer edges of the card.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Tear a piece of copy paper to cover the clear area of un-inked card, in the centre of your background. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Swirl the Pearlywinks Golden Shimmer Pearl Mist, to activate the Mica. Spray on to your glass mat, then use a paint brush to splatter over your background. 

Remove the copy paper and blast dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Create your stamped artwork by inking up a selection of the stamps, from the Say It With Love stamp set, with your different coloured Premium inks. Stamp using first and second generation stamping (Don't re-ink in between stamping) and spritz some of the inked stamps with water first, before stamping. Ensure your images are stamped off the bottom edge of the card.

Using these different techniques will give you a natural, loose watercolour effect, with dimension and perspective. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink your sentiment stamp from the Love & Hope stamp set, with Tiffany and stamp to the left of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 6
