“Princess” text stamp from Making Memories
Versafine Instant Dry Black Pigment Ink

Distress Ink in Weathered Wood & Spiced Marmalade

Matte White Paper (2 3/8" x 3 3/8"), Black Paper ATC size format (2.5” x 3.5”)

1

Stamp your ATC and masking tape (or paper) with Versafine Black. Cut the mask and glue it with removable glue over your stamped image.

2

Wrinkle the wax paper and put it over your ATC. Place another ATC card on top of it. You'll have 2 pieces of paper with the wax transferred.

3

Cover the papers & wax paper with an additional piece of paper to protect your iron from the wax.

4

 

Iron the papers.

5

Remove the papers and sponge your image with Weather Wood ink.  The wax has left a residue that gives the paper a textured background.

6

Next add some of the Spiced Marmalade ink.

7

Stamp the blossom and text with black ink.

8

Remove the mask and color woman and blossoms with colored pencils.

9

Glue your colored ATC onto the black ATC paper (2.5” x 3.5”).
