  • Instructions

    Step 1

    My background was created w/ Viridian, Black Leather Jacket through the Beehive Stencil, Desire through the Dot Matrix stencil, Portobello, Lemon Tart, & Sandcastle. Spray rest w/Salmon & Siesta Key.

    Step 2

    Stamp the image onto a sheet of white tissue paper. I like to use Versifine ink because it holds up to being painted over.

    Step 3

    Paint the image with Ferrari, Parakeet, Cayman, and Pumpkin Spice Sorbet and Copper Metal Effects.

    Step 4

    Tear out the image. You want ragged edges with no harsh corners or lines.

    Step 5

    Using matte gel medium, glue the image down.

    Step 6

    Type out your text and spray with Rustic Colorations and Ice Fairy Dust.

    Step 7

    Cut out and add your text. Edge the page with thinned Tuxedo Velvet.

    Step 8

    Go around the edges of the words with a paint brush and slightly thinned Tuxedo Velvet.

    Step 9

    You're done!
