Whilst the stencil is still in place, splatter water over the ink, wait a few seconds then mop up with a paper towel.

How To Guide - Step 5

Place the 2 dies back in position, around your sentiment and run them through your die cutting machine.

Adhere the stencilled frame flat, within the aperture, ensuring you line up the stencilled pattern.

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your stencilled sentiment in the centre, again ensuring you line up the stencilled design. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere this to the front of your 7 x 5" pink card blank, then pop to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Stamp these cheeky monsters in the Midnight ink, on to a piece of white card. Use the coordinating die to cut them out.

Use your Gossip alcohol pens to colour them in.

Tip: Place a sheet of copy paper underneath, to protect your work surface from the alcohol ink that will bleed through the card. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Use your white gel pen to add accents and highlights to your characters. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Adhere your monsters with foam pads where required and voila!!
