How To Guide - Step 1

Shake the Pixie Powder on to the white card, then spray with water and watch the magic happen! You can add more powder and/or water, until you are happy with your background.

Use your heat tool to dry it. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Shake your blue Gossip iridescent pen, to activate the glitter before squeezing some on to your glass mat. Use a paint brush to splatter the glitter over your background, before drying it with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Lay your background in landscape view, place the Stylized Frame stencil on top and secure with low tack tape. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Using a blending tool, apply the Kitsch Flamingo around the inner edges of the stencil

How To Guide - Step 5

Keeping the stencil in place, ink the beautiful stamp from Dare To Dream, with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp within your frame stencil. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Carefully remove the stencil and dry your artwork with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Pop some of the Kitsch Flamingo on to your glass mat, add water and paint within the reflection of the cabin, as though the sunset is reflecting in the water. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Shake the blue Gossip pen again, then add sparkle to the reflective water. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Apply the Cotton pigment ink to your glass mat, add water and paint accents and highlights as required. I added them to the tops of the mountains, on the roof of the cabin, on the water banks and a few in the reflections in the water.  

Dry your artwork with your heat tool, as pigment ink is slow drying and it will smudge!! 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up "Make A Wish" with the Midnight and stamp in the bottom left corner of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish, adhere your artwork on to the black card and then on to your pink, landscape card blank.
