Ink up the solid stamp, from the Merry & Bright Lamination set, with the Redwood ink pad. Spritz the stamp with water and stamp on to the white card. Repeat this multiple times, to create a background. 

Blast dry with your heat tool.

Smoosh a little Black Soot Oxide on to your glass mat, spritz with water and splatter over your background with a paint brush. Blast dry with your heat tool.  

How To Guide - Step 4

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

You will need TWO circle nesting dies, one 3 1/4" in diameter and the other 2 1/2" in diameter, thus omitting the die in between.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Use the biggest die to cut a circle from your stamped background, then place the smaller die in the center of the die cut circle and run that through your machine. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Trim a piece of card slightly smaller than your background and adhere your background on top, as seen here.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Adhere the die cut stamped circle, in the middle of the circle aperture, lining it up with the stamped background images. 

You will not need the die cut stamped circle frame but don't bin it! Save for another project!

Adhere your artwork on to your black card blank and pop to one side.
