How To Guide - Step 1

Secure the 5 x 2 1/2" white card, with low tack tape, towards the bottom left corner of the white card blank, but with a gap down the left and underneath, as seen here

How To Guide - Step 2

Using the solid leaf stamps from the Keep Exploring Stamp Collection, stamp them randomly around the top, bottom and left side of the panel, using the Distress Oxides, spritzing each inked stamp with water, before stamping. Ensure some of your stamped images overlap on to the card panel.

Tip: You may need to apply extra pressure where the 2 pieces of card meet, to get a crisp, clear image. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Ink up the coordinating detailed stamps with the Midnight hybrid ink and only stamp over SOME of the solid images, leaving others with no stamped detail. Remember to apply that extra pressure where the 2 pieces of card meet. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Apply a little of the Oxides on to your glass mat, add water and splatter as required. I like lots of splats but the choice is yours!!

Ensure the ink is dry before proceeding. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Carefully remove the stamped panel and set the stamped card blank to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the right-facing Daffodil from Sketched Florals, with the Midnight and stamp in the centre of the panel. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Once dry, adhere your panel on to the 5 1/4 x 2 3/4" black card. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere your stamped panel back in place, flat with wet glue, ensuring you line up all your stamped images. This is known as the "Spotlight Technique". 

How To Guide - Step 9

Finally, stamp the sentiment down the right hand side of the panel, with the Midnight ink.
