How To Guide - Step 1

Trim a piece of white card to 6 1/2 x 4 1/2".

Swipe a little of the Limeade and Tiffany on to your glass mat. Spritz with water and then "smoosh" the card in to the ink to create an inky, watercolour panel across the top half of the card. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Blend Tiffany randomly through the Herringbone stencil, over the inky panel. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Once the ink is completely dry, stamp the hanging birdcage in Midnight, in the top left corner of your inky panel. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Extend your stamped design with this fill-in foliage stamp. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Stamp the harp coming on to the bottom right of the inky panel. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Stamp the sentiment from the lamination set, in Midnight, to the lower right of your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Use your IMALA white gel pen to add accents, highlight and fill-ins, making your stamped images "pop" against the ink. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Secure your artwork on to your kraft card blank, to finish.
