How To Guide - Step 1

Apply ink, from the 3 Izink ink pads, on to the acrylic block.

Spritz with a little water, and place block centrally, to the left hand side of the white card. Let the card drink up the ink, before carefully removing the block. 

Allow the ink to dry naturally, for a better effect. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Repeat the previous step, placing the block above, and slightly to the right, of the previous one. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Repeat this step again, placing it below the other 2 inked panels. 

If possible, allow all panels to dry naturally, but you can speed up the process with a heat gun, if required. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Apply a little of one, or two, of the Izink ink pads, on to a glass or craft mat.

Spritz with water and lightly splatter over your inked panels. 

Dry, before moving on to next step. 


How To Guide - Step 5

Ink up the solid foliage stamp, from the Sending Hugs Lamination Stamp Collection, with the Iced Spruce Distress Oxide. 

Spritz with water and stamp it coming down the inked panels, from the top left corner. If you are unsure where to stamp, use the detailed, coordinating stamp, as a guide.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Ink up the detailed, coordinating stamp, with the Faded Jeans Distress Oxide.

Spritz with water, line it up and stamp over the stamped image. If you are unsure where to stamp, use the images on the packaging as a guide. Alternatively, stamp it on to copier paper first, to see how the 2 stamps line up. These are "loose" lamination designs, so don't be too worried if you can't line them up perfectly.   

How To Guide - Step 7

Ink up the sentiment, from the Christmas Blessings Stamp Collection, with the Faded Jeans Oxide. 

Stamp just to the right of the bottom of your stamped foliage. You can reink, and stamp, as many times as you want, to achieve the depth of colour required.  

How To Guide - Step 8

Spray the Confetti Paint with water, and use a paint brush to splatter the paint all over your artwork, as required. I love lots of splats but you can add as little, or as much, as you like. 

Dry off all your artwork thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Mat your artwork on top of the blue, pearlised card. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Mat this on top of your grey, top folding, card blank. 

How To Guide - Step 11

To finish, add some sequins on to your artwork, as required.
