How To Guide - Step 1

Trim this beautiful paper, from the Happy Haunting pack, to 7 x 4 3/4". 

Ink up the Romance collage stamp with the Midnight hybrid ink and stamp just off the bottom, left edge of the decorative paper. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Re-ink and stamp again, on to a piece of white card. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Die cut the tower, using the coordinating die. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Using your die cut element as a positional guide, secure your circle "mask" in place so it will sit behind the top of the tower, as shown here. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Use your blending brush to apply the Cotton ink, so it's coming out and fading away, from the "mask". 

How To Guide - Step 6

Use a paint brush to splatter the Pearlywinks Pearl Mist over your artwork. 

NB: The Cotton pigment ink is slow drying and WILL smudge, so give it a blast with your heat tool to speed up the drying time! 

How To Guide - Step 7

Use foam pads to adhere your die cut tower in place, trimming off any overhang you may have.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Tear a piece of vellum, big enough for the sentiment to fit on to and leaving excess vellum above.

Wipe over the vellum with your anti-static bag before stamping the sentiment with the sticky embossing ink. Apply the white embossing powder over the sticky ink and heat set. Make sure your heat tool is hot BEFORE you take it to the powder, as this will help minimise any warping. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Lay the embossed vellum on the top right of your artwork, fold the excess vellum over the top of the card and adhere on the reverse with double-sided adhesive tape. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Mat your artwork on to black card, trimmed to 7 1/4 x 5" and then affix to your pink card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish, use the Stickles to add a touch of sparkle to your artwork, in particular around the edge of your Moon.
