How To Guide - Step 1

Placing one of the larger IMALA heart stencils top centre of your white cardstock,  use your blending tools to apply Faded Jeans. Place the next size down stencil below, but slightly overlapping the first and apply the Mermaid Lagoon. Finally, place the smaller stencil below the other two and blend through with Peacock Feathers. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Splatter your stencilled background with water and dab up any excess water and ink, with a paper towel. 

Stamp your IMALA Flora Spiral, with black Memento, over your stencilled background. 

Colour the stamped image using your preferred colour medium. I used alcohol pens but remember alcohol ink will bleed through card so pop a sheet of copy paper or scrap card underneath, to protect your work surface. 

Stamp your sentiment in the Memento, across the bottom left corner. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Highlight the edges of the coloured areas, using your IMALA white gel pen.

How To Guide - Step 4

Glue the artwork on to the black cardstock and then onto the blank card, to finish
