How To Guide - Step 1

Cut a piece of white card to 6 3/4 x 4 3/4". 

Place the Fern stencil on your card, so the image is coming up from the bottom right corner. Use your blending brush to lightly apply the Lost Shadow Oxide through the stencil. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Place the Floral stencil over the stencilled image, taking the image off the right edge of the card. Blend with the Worn Lipstick, applying more ink where shadows and depth would be. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Blend around the outer edges of the card with the Lost Shadow. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Smoosh a little of the Lost Shadow Oxide on to your glass mat, add water and splatter over your artwork, with a paint brush, as required. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up the "script" aspect of the stamp, that comes with the Wistful Charm collection, with the Lost Shadow Oxide. Randomly stamp the script onto your artwork where required. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Using the dies as a guide, cut ONE drop from the Sepia Tabs 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 7

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

How To Guide - Step 8

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.
