I always use a newspaper with a piece of kitchen roll under my card when using mists... keeps the mess to a minimum :O])
Mist Ranger Specialty Stamping paper with water, giving it a generous dousing.
Use all three ink sprays, misting over the paper to blend the colours together a bit... try not to overspray otherwise you won't get a definition of colour.
Dry thoroughly using your heat tool... if you have any white patches left over, you can re-mist with a smidge of water to make the inks move about a bit.
Pop the Heart Stencil onto the card and use Faded Jeans DI with a blending tool to apply the ink into the heart shape, try not to over ink the edges of the stencil, work in small circular motions to blend nicely.
Remove Stencil and zap the inked page with a heat tool to set the Distress Ink
Replace Stencil and lightly mist over with Sea View Misting Ink, add a spritz of water if you like to smoosh it about a bit.
Remove the Stencil and dry the page with a heat tool.
Pop the cutty outy heart from the Stencil over the heart design.
Place the Brick Wall Stencil over the top
Use Cut & Dry foam or blending tool and apply Crushed Olive Distress Ink over the stencils, keep them firmly in place and try not to smudge over the edge of the Brick Stencil so you get a nice blended effect.
Blend Faded Jeans DI around the edges of the page
Use a fine nibbed black pen to squiggly draw around the centre heart, go around twice to make wavy lines for a faux stitched effect.
Place the Classic Words Stencil with the word Fragile over the heart, use a thick black pen to trace through the stencil and dry with a heat tool.
Place the same stencil with the 1 - 0 bit over the bottom of the page and use the fine nib pen to lightly trace the figures.
Add some squiggly lines around the edge of the page.
Pop a Chain Tassell onto some rusty wire, twist and then poke a hole through the heart, pop the twist of wire through, secure onto back of page, stick to black card, tie a bow and use Cosmic Glue to stick this to the wirey bit. Voila, done!
