Ink on the EMBOSSED side, around the edges of the Magical Dream embossing folder, with the Distress Vintage Photo ink pad and spritz lightly with water.

Place the decorative paper inside the inked folder and run it through your embossing folder. You can add more ink to your embossed background, with your blending tool and then dry thoroughly with your heat tool.

Place your circle mask in the top right corner and blend out from the mask with your Sherbet ink, to create your Sun. Dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Stamp the witch and bats, from the Halloween Reflection bundle, in the Midnight ink, to create your "scene". 

How To Guide - Step 6

Add water to your Confetti Ink and use a paint brush to splatter over your artwork as little, or as much, as you like. I like lots of splats!!

Once your artwork is completely dry, adhere to black card cut to 6 x 4 1/2".

Adhere your artwork on to the decorative paper. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere on to your kraft card blank and pop to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Stamp the sentiment from the Halloween collection, on to a piece of leftover decorative paper. Trim to size, with a straight edge on the right and a jaunty angle (your choice) on the left. Ink around the edges with the Vinatge Photo Distress ink. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Adhere your sentiment flush with the right edge of your embossed card. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Use your white gel pen to add accents and highlights to your silhouette images.

Finally, draw a black line around the outer edges of your sentiment, to make it "pop" against your artwork.
