Tear a sheet of copy paper to create TWO skyline "masks", placing one near the top and the other just under half way down the front of your card blank.
Use your blending brush to apply the Ocean ink, coming up from the lower mask, fading it out as you move upwards.
Use your magnet to hold your circle mask in the centre, coming up from your blended ink.
Blend within the rest of your masked-off panel, with the Heather, blending well where both colours meet.
Use a paint brush to splatter drops of water over the ink. Wait a few seconds before mopping up the excess water and ink, with a paper towel.
Remove the circle mask and lightly blend the Heather within your rising Moon, taking away the harshness of the white card.
Remove your skyline masks and allow the ink to dry thoroughly.
Stamp your reflective skyline, with the Midnight Hybrid ink, across your inked panel.
Stamp the sentiment in Midnight, below and to the right, of the inked panel
Use a white gel pen to add accents and highlights to your stamped image.
Your card is now complete. You can add a hint of glitter or sparkle if desired.
