How To Guide - Step 1

Remove this decorative paper from your Creative Watercolours pack. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Secure the Maple stencil with your magnets, on top of the decorative paper, so the base of the Maple Leaf is bottom left. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Using a blending tool, apply the No-Line ink within the stencil but focusing the depth of ink around the inner edges. 

Remove the stencil and blast the ink dry with a heat tool.  

How To Guide - Step 4

Apply the Midnight hybrid ink to the detailed stamp, from the Friend Like You Lamination Collection and stamp coming up from the bottom left corner. 

Again, give the ink a blast with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Pop a little of the Cotton pigment ink on to your glass mat and add water. Using a paint brush, colour in areas of the stamp so it pushes back the coloured design, on the decorative paper.

You can reapply the Cotton ink as many times as you want, to get the effect you require.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Once the ink is dry, line the Maple Leaf stencil back in position and use a black fine line pen to trace around the shape of the Maple Leaf as required. I did NOT trace over the drips of paint, in the top left corner as I wanted them to give the appearance of flowing out from the design. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Use the Midnight to ink up the sentiment stamp, before stamping it in the bottom, right corner of your artwork.

Set aside to dry.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Remove this textured paper from the Copper All Surfaces Paper Pack and trim to 6 1/4" square. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your artwork on to the textured paper and then on to your white card blank, to finish.
