How To Guide - Step 1

Swipe the Heather ink pad over the debossed side of the Imala Damask Textile embossing folder and spritz with water. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place the 6 1/2" square white card face down, on the inked side of the folder and lightly press all over the card.

Carefully lift it off to reveal your printed background, then blast dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Using a blending tool, apply the Peacock Feathers around the edges of your printed card, blending it with your printed background. 

Again, blast the ink dry with your heat tool.  

How To Guide - Step 4

Tear this printed paper from the Funky Fossil Rainbow Watercolour paper pad and trim to 6 3/4" square. Set any remaining paper to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Adhere your printed background on to the decorative paper. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink the Me And My Girls stamp with the Midnight and stamp across your layered background. 

NB: You may need to apply a little more pressure where the paper meets the card, to get a crisp, clear stamped image. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Colour in the "Bride" with your watercolour paints. You can colour all the girls in if you wish, but with a "busy" background, I wanted my centre lady/Bride to "pop". 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Ink up the "Best Friends" sentiment stamp, from Imala With The Boys, with the Midnight ink and stamp on to the Rainbow Watercolour paper you set aside earlier. Trim to size. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your sentiment to the right of your artwork, flush with the edge of your paper. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere your artwork on to your 7 1/2" square, white card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Use your Ranger Stickles to add glitter and sparkle down the folds of the gown and on the floral bouquet.

How To Guide - Step 12

To finish, go round the edges of your sentiment panel, with the Stickles, to create a sparkly, glitter border.
