How To Guide - Step 1

Ink the debossed side of the Urban Hearts embossing folder, with the Magenta and Ocean ink pads, then spritz lightly with water. 

Place the white card, cut to 5 3/4" square, inside the folder with the inky side on the top and run it through your embossing machine. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Using your blending tool, apply Magenta around the edges of the embossed card. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Smoosh the Cotton ink pad on to your glass mat, add a little water and use a paint brush to splatter the ink over your background.

Blast with your heat tool as the Cotton ink is slow drying and will smudge.

Mat your artwork on to the black card (6" square), then the pink card (6 3/4" square) and then on to the black card (7" square).

Adhere on to your 7 1/2" square white card blank and set to one side.

Ink up our cute Gnomes with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp on to the A4 white card, setting the remaining card to one side. Use the coordinating die to cut them out, then colour in with your alcohol pens.

Tip: Pop a sheet of copy paper or scrap card underneath, to protect your work surface from the alcohol ink that bleeds through the card.

Ink up the "Family" and "Love" Daisies, with the Midnight and stamp on to the white card you set aside. Die cut using the coordinating dies, then colour in with your alcohol pens. 

Snip off the flower heads from both, setting all elements to one side.
