How To Guide - Step 14

Using your die cut monster as a guide, stamp the sentiment from the stencil and stamp set, with the Cotton pigment ink, so it sits to the left of where your monster will be. 

NB: Pigment ink is slow drying and will smudge, so make sure it's completely dry. If you're impatient like me, give it a quick blast with a heat tool!
