How To Guide - Step 1

Holding the 7 x 5" white card upright, spray the Izink Morning Mist liberally, across the top of the card then allow it to drip. You can encourage the ink to move by spritzing with a little water.

Repeat using the Vert D'Eau, until you are happy with your background. Give it a blast with your heat tool, then trim just a few mm's off the bottom and down one side (so it will fit easily, in the acetate shaker window).  

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the beautiful Cabin with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp across your inky background.

Dry the ink with your heat tool, before moving on to the next step.  

How To Guide - Step 3

Using a paint brush, add water to areas of your artwork that you want to "highlight", wait a few seconds for it to activate the ink, then "lift" the ink with a paper towel or cloth. This is known as the Faux Bleach technique. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ensure your artwork is completely dry before securing your Stylized Frame stencil in position, as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Using a blending tool, apply Tiffany within the frame aperture, fading the colour out as you blend away from the edges. 

Remove the stencil and dry your artwork thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Peel the protective film off the front of your acetate shaker window, then fold each of the sides over, on the score lines and burnish with your bone folder. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Wipe over your artwork with an anti-static bag, then place face down, inside your acetate window. Remove the backing tape, sealing up THREE sides of the window, leaving one of the longer sides unsealed. 

NB: The adhesive tape is very strong, so once you seal it down it will not budge!!

How To Guide - Step 8

Pour your sequins in the open side, then peel off tape to seal closed and voila!! A fabulous infinity shaker topper! 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere this on to the front of your top folding, white card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Ink up the "Dare To Dream" sentiment stamp with Midnight, stamp on to white card, then trim to size.

Adhere this on to black card and trim to size, to create a mat. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Adhere to the front, bottom left of your card to finish. When adhering anything to acetate, I persoanlly like to use red liner tape but the choice is yours.
