How To Guide - Step 1

Take 1 of the 4 x 6" Peaceful Moment toppers and place the Peaceful Moment stencil over the top left area. Use your blending tool to lightly apply the Distress inks through the stencil creating a delicate, subtle background. Ensure you "fade out" the ink the further down you go.

Lightly blend the same colours around the edges of the topper, with more depth of colour at the top and fading it out around the bottom.

Stamp this beautiful image from the same collection, coming up from the bottom left corner, in the Midnight ink.

Stamp the sentiment to the right of your stamped image.
