How To Guide - Step 1

Cut a piece of white card to 7 3/4 x 3 3/4". 

Use your blending brush to apply Heather over the card, keeping it darker around the edges and fading out towards the centre. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Splatter with water drops and mop up the excess ink with a paper towel. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Stamp the beautiful dreamcatcher from Boho chic, with the Heather, coming on to the top left of the card.

Use a paint brush to apply water to areas of the design. Wait a few seconds for the water to activate the ink, then "lift" out the ink with a paper towel, repeating this until you are happy with the effect. This is referred to as "faux bleaching".

On a seperate piece of white card, apply Heather but intensify the depth of colour. Stamp just the centre circle design of the dreamcatcher, in Heather.
