How To Guide - Step 1

Stamp our Graffiti Monsters on to a masking sheet, or a piece of copy paper and fussy cut to create your "masks", keeping as close to the stamped lines as possible. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Ink up the first monster with the Midnight ink and stamp in the bottom right corner of the white card, cut to 8 1/4 x 3 1/2". 

How To Guide - Step 3

Cover your stamped image with the appropriate "mask". 

Tip: Place a sheet of copy paper underneath your card, as you will be doing a lot of stamping off the edges of the card. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Stamp your next monster in Midnight, so it's just overlapping the masked-off monster. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Cover the second image with it's "mask". 

How To Guide - Step 6

Stamp another monster peeking up, from behind the 2 masked-off monsters, then cover with it's "mask". 

This "masking technique" is how you create your dimensional, layered look, stamping the images you want at the front first, then masking those off before stamping the images you want to appear "behind". 

How To Guide - Step 7

Using the tecniques from the previous steps, continue to stamp and cover your images with the "masks", until you have covered the white card with your stamped monsters.

NB: You only have to "mask off" the images you want the next image to appear behind, so you can move your masks around and re-use them, as many times as required.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Remove all your masks and voila...a fabulous array of cheeky monsters!!

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere this on to the black card cut to 8 1/4 x 3 3/4", so the top and bottom edges are flush and there is an equal amount of black card visible down the left and right side. Pop to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Stamp one of the cheeky monsters on to a piece of white card and use the coordinating die to cut it out. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Paint with your neon watercolour paints. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Stamp the sentiment in Midnight, to the right of the white card cut to 3 3/4 x 1", then adhere to the black card cut to 3 3/4 x 1 1/4", as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Adhere across the bottom third of your stamped card. 

How To Guide - Step 14

Adhere this to your DL card so the top and bottom are flush and there is an equal amount of white card visible, down the left and right side. 

How To Guide - Step 15

Use foam pads to adhere your monster to the left of the stamped sentiment, to finish.
