How To Guide - Step 5

Remove this decorative paper from the Cotton Pines 7 x 7" paper pack and trim to 5 1/2" square. 

Place the silhouette stag aperture stencil, from the same collection, on to your decorative paper and blend the Cotton ink within the aperture, fading it out as you move inwards.

Pigment ink is slow drying and will smudge, so use your heat tool to ensure it is completely dry, before moving on to the next step.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Place the stag mask over your stencilled image and blend out with the Midnight ink, thus creating a shadow, allowing the Stag to "pop". Blast dry with your heat tool.
