Tutorial Crafty Indviduals Stamps

Crafty Individuals & perfect pearls

These are the supplies you need to make this card........

1. Ink up the Ranger Ink Blending tool with Antique Linen Distress Ink and Blend to a 10cm x 10cm square piece of cream card. Repeat this process with Brushed Corduroy.

2. Dry the ink with a heat tool.

3. Ink up your crafty Individuals stamp with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and stamp on top of your blended piece.

3. Take your Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls and apply only to the main bird image and dust off the excess.

4. Spritz with water, this will release the Vintage photo ink underneath the perfect pearls to give an exciting finish.

5. Use the Tim Holtz paper distress'er to edge the image, adding a touch of Distress ink.

To finish I have mated any layered on to brown bazill, gold miri card. I have added a We r memory keepers metal embellishment and finished with glossy accents.
