How To Guide - Step 1

Trim a piece of kraft card to 5 1/2 x 4". 

Place inside the Colourful Daisy embossing folder and run it through your machine. Swipe the Cotton ink pad around the edges of the card, fading it out as you move inwards, towards the embossed image. 

NB: Pigment ink is very slow drying allowing it to blend easily. Dry the ink with a heat tool, once your background effect has been achieved, to avoid unwanted smudging! 

How To Guide - Step 2

Smoosh a little Cotton ink on your glass mat, add water and splatter over your artwork with a paint brush. Blast dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Use your paint brush to add more Cotton ink around the outer edges of your embossed Daisies, allowing the design to really "pop". 

How To Guide - Step 4

Paint the centres of your Daisies with the Confetti Goldmine paint.

How To Guide - Step 5

Splatter the Goldmine paint over your artwork, before blasting it dry with your heat tool. 

How To Guide - Step 6

To draw your eye in to the artwork, blend Walnut Stain around your kraft card and then Black Soot, to intensify the edges. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Tear a panel of vellum that will fit diagonally across the top corner and be wide enough to fit the sentiment on. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Having wiped over your vellum with an anti-static bag, stamp the sentiment in the WOW embossing ink. Apply the White embossing powder over your stamped sentiment, tapping the excess back in to the pot. Ensure your heat tool is hot before heat setting the powder. 

Lay the vellum across the top left corner of your artwork, fold the ends of the vellum over the edges of the card and secure on the reverse with double-sided tape. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your artwork on to black card, cut to 5 3/4 x 4 1/4" and then on to the front of your 7 x 5" kraft card blank.
