How To Guide - Step 1

Stamp the beautiful skyline reflection stamp, from Reach For The Stars, in Midnight, on to white card cut to 7 x 4 3/4", as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Secure a circle "mask" in place so the Moon will appear to "rise" up from behind the skyline. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Blend the Indigo away from the circle "mask", fading out the colour as you move towards the edges of the card.  

How To Guide - Step 4

Stamp the "starry" texture stamp from the same set, in Midnight, above your skyline as required. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Choose a sheet from Painted Fragments and cut to 7" wide. 

Using your stamped image as a positional guide, tear the sheet so you have one panel that will sit across the top of the card and the other will be angled below your image (see final photo for inspiration). 

How To Guide - Step 6

Scrunch the torn edges before securing in place.

Mat your artwork on to white card cut to 7 1/4 x 5"

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere to the front of your black card blank and pop to one side.

How To Guide - Step 8

Using the dies as a guide, cut ONE drop from the typewriter washi roll. Lift up the backing sheet along one end of the tape and adhere across the top of an A4 sheet of white card. Slowly peel away the backing, as you use your hand to smooth the washi tape down on to the card. Once the backing has been fully removed, you can burnish the washi to ensure there are no air bubbles or creases. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Line up the first die and secure with low tack tape before running it through your machine. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Line up the second die and run it through your machine. 

Pop out all the sentiments, pick out the one you are using for this project and keep the rest in a tub for future projects. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Finish by adhereing your washi sentiment tabs in place, with foam pads.
