How To Guide - Step 1

Stamp our lady on to your masking sheet (or copy paper) and fussy cut to create your "mask". 

How To Guide - Step 2

Secure your mask on the left side of a piece of white card measuring 5 x 7". 

Spray the inks on to your glass mat, add a little water and "smoosh" on to your card. I use a piece of thin plastic, cello bag, scrunched up foil or acrylic block. The method you use is entirely up to you. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Keeping the "mask" in situ, stamp the Manhattan Dreams in Midnight, over your inky background. Remember to apply extra pressure around the edges of the mask, to get that clear, crisp image. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Remove the mask and dry the ink thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Stamp your lady in Midnight. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Stamp the sentiment on to a piece of white card then trim to shape. Use a black pen to draw a stitched frame around the edges. Adhere to the top right of your artwork, flush with the top as seen here. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Finally, secure your artwork on to your black, landscape card blank.
