Card Making Tutorial

I mask off a piece of white card and dabbed the diatress oxides onto this

The stencil was layed over the top and sprayed with water. The water was then blotted off with tissue

And the mask removed

I splattered the card base with wateted down acrylic paint

Then stamped the 2 distress inks with the washi tape stamp

Onto the Cracked Pistachio strip I hrat embossed Dad

These were both trimmed down

The broken china one was adhered with double sided tape, while the cracked cracked Pistachio one uses foam squares

The moles were stamped, coloured and cut on the scan n cut befpre being adhered onto the white panel 

The emerald city nuvo drops were added to the washi strips

While the sunlit meadow was added to the white panel

This was then adhered onto an A5 card base

Thank you for reading

Happy Crafting
