 Instructions 

Letter It Miss You Card

Step 1: Using a piece of low tack tape, tape off a section of Letter It White Cardstock at a diagonal. Then use Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks with Ranger's Mini Ink Blending Tool/Foam to ink up the cardstock.

Step 2: Starting on both sides of the tape, use Peacock Feathers and a Mini Ink Blending Tool to blend the color out a short way. Then use Cracked Pistachio and blend into Peacock Feathers and to the rest of the card panel.

Step 3: Using Ranger's Non-Stick Craft Sheet as your work surface, adhere Letter It's Puzzled Mosaic Stencil with low-tack tape on top of the inked card panel. Then use the Palette Knife to spread the Texture Paste over the stencil.

Step 4: Only spread the Texture Paste over the center, don't go all the way to the edge of the card panel. Remove tape immediately before the Texture Paste dries. Set aside to dry. The Texture Paste will dry clear and glossy.
