How To Guide - Step 1

Place the white card trimmed, to 6 1/2 x 4 1/2", inside the Tulip Bouquet embossing folder, so the image is captured just off the edge of the cardstock. Run it through your embossing machine. 

How To Guide - Step 2

For this technique you will need to turn it over and use the DEBOSSED side. 

Colour in your debossed image using your alcohol pens, placing a sheet of copy paper underneath, to protect your work surface from the ink that bleeds through the card. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Lightly blend your Lost Shadow Oxide ink pad directly over your card, including the coloured debossed image! You can leave white spaces as this will give your artwork a distressed look. 

Blast the ink dry, with your heat tool.  

How To Guide - Step 4

Now randomly blend the Black Soot ink pad around the edges, ensuring you capture areas of your coloured, debossed image. 

Blast the ink dry with your heat tool. At this stage, you can now go back in with the inks, adding colour and intensity as required. 


How To Guide - Step 5

Splatter droplets of water over your artwork, wait a few seconds then mop up the excess with a paper towel.

Swirl the Pearlywinks Pearl Mist, to activate the mica. Spray a little on to your glass mat, then splatter over your artwork. Dry with your heat tool.

How To Guide - Step 6

Adhere your artwork on to the white card cut to 6 3/4 x 4 3/4". 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere this on to the black card cut to 7 1/4 x 5 1/4".
