How To Guide - Step 1

Apply a little of the Indigo ink to your glass mat, spritz with water and pick up the ink on to the card, cut to 6 1/2 x 4 1/2". 

Repeat with Ocean, until you are happy with your inky background. Give it a quick blast with a heat tool, to dry it off. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place the Sylized Heart stencil just off the left side of your background. Secure the circle mask in the top left corner of your heart stencil, as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Using a blending tool, apply the Indigo through the stencil, darker on the outer edges, fading it out as you move inwards. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Swirl your purple iridescent Gossip pen, to activate the glitter, then squeeze some on to your glass mat. Use a paint brush to splatter the glitter within the stencil.

Blast your artwork dry, with a heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up this beautiful stamp, from Better Together, with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp just off the left side of your background. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the foliage stamps, from Your Only limit Is You, with the Midnight and stamp coming down from the top left corner, as required. 

Ink the flock of birds, from Every New Day, with Midnight and then stamp them flying to the right of your foliage. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Repeat the previous step but this time coming up, from the bottom left edge of your background, thus creating a "reflection" of the foliage and birds. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the "Better Together" sentiment stamp with Midnight, then stamp to the top right of the stencilled heart.

Adhere your artwork on to the black card, cut to 6 3/4 x 4 3/4" and then on to your 7 x 5" kraft card blank.
