  1. Fold an 8.5" x 5.5" piece of Velvet Night cardstock in half to form an A2 card.
  2. Cut a piece of Velvet Night cardstock to 4" x 5.25".
  3. Using VersaMark ink, stamp the Clock Collage onto the navy cardstock. Add Kaleidoscope Sparkly Embossing Powder, dump off the excess, and heat set.
  4. Sponge the edges with VersaMark ink, drag them through a pile of Kaleidoscope Sparkly Embossing Powder, shake off the excess, then heat set. Set the card front aside.
  5. Using Tuxedo Black Memento ink, stamp Count Catula onto white cardstock and onto thin paper.
  6. Color the cardstock version with Copic markers. 
  7. Fussy-cut the thin paper version of Count Catula and adhere over his counterpart using repositionable adhesive.
  8. Use Post-It Notes to cover the base of the image.
  9. Airbrush the sky background with B37, B66, B99 Copic markers.
  10. Apply some Titanium White paint to a craft mat. Press a toothbrush into the wet paint, then run a credit card over the paint brush to splatter white paint over the dark airbrushed background.
  11. Lift the masks and color the ground.
  12. Die-cut the image and a piece of black metallic cardstock with a pair of the dies from the Fitted Frames A Die Set.
  13. Mat the image die-cut onto the metallic black die cut.

    1. Hi Rebecca,
      I think that we've been really busy getting the new release sorted. The new posts should be coming at you with more frequency soon!

      I know it took me a while to get back to you since I was away on vacation and forgot to check my comments. Oops!
