Place the page die, from the Pressed Flowers Die Collection, on to the white card (7 1/2 x 5 1/2"). 

Run through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 2

Apply a little of the Izink Stratosphere Pigment on to a craft or glass mat. 

Spray with water, then pick up the ink on to your die cut page, to create your background.

Set to one side to dry.  

How To Guide - Step 3

Tear your book page to the desired size, so it will fit on your die cut page. 

Add the Vintage Photo Oxide on to your craft mat.

Spritz with water and pick up the ink with the torn book page. 

Allow the ink to dry before completing the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 4

Ink up the rose stamp, from the Imala Rose Ornament set, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp just off the left hand edge of your torn book page. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Apply a little of the Lychee, Avalanche and Wet Meadow Pigments on to your craft mat. 

Add a little water and paint your stamped image. 

I mixed the Avalanche with both the Lychee and the Wet Meadow, using them as a base colour for my artwork. Then I used them on their own, to add depth and shadow where required.  

Allow the artwork to dry completely, before proceeding to the next step. 

How To Guide - Step 6

Use your white gel pen to add accents, and highlights, to your artwork. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Apply a little of the Izink Stratosphere Pigment on to your craft mat. 

Add a little water and paint a wash around your artwork. Start off light, then you can go in and build up the colour where required, to add depth and shadow. 

 

How To Guide - Step 8

Apply a little of the Izink Avalanche Pigment on to your craft mat. 

Add a little water and splatter over your artwork, with a paint brush, as much as required...I like a lot of splats!!

Dry off your artwork, before moving on to the next stage. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Adhere your artwork on to the die cut page you set aside earlier. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere on to the front of your black, top folding card blank. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Ink up the sentiment stamp, from the Smile Everyday Lamination Stamp Collection, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp on to the white card (2 x 1 1/2"). 

Cut the sentiment in to strips, and use the black pen to draw a stitched frame around each one. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Glue the sentiment strips on to your artwork, using either wet glue, or foam pads. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Add sequins on to your artwork, as desired, to complete your card.
