How to make

Colour the stamp using your AquaTint Pens.

Once coloured, using your own breath, “huff” over the stamp to reactivate where any ink may have dried!

Stamp image onto your Sheena stamping card.

Using a very damp paintbrush, drag the colour from the stamped image to colour in your stamp. If you require extra colour put some AquaTint on your glass mat and pick up the colour with a damp paintbrush.

Dry with a heat gun as you go so you are in control of your finished image.

To finish off, use a mix of glycerine and AquaTints and blend around the edge of your stamped image - being careful not to touch your stamped image.

Now mat and layer your card, add the twine and attach to your card base.
