Step 1: Line up a card front created from Specialty Stamping Paper on Wendy Vecchi MAKE ART STAY-tion. Use the magnetic ruler on the STAY-tion to secure the Window Maker Stencil and card front.

Step 2: Use scrap pieces of paper on the stencil over the areas you are not inking. This will act as a mask, so you do not accidently shade in other images.

Step 6: To create the bricks mask off areas you do not want shaded. Blend Crown Me into bricks. Move the stencil over three of the colored bricks in to shade in the next area of bricks. If any ink accidently gets on another shaded area use a moist Q-tip and gently rub off.
