Instructions:

  1. To make a red spritz for your project, place a teaspoon of the red ink into one of the spritzer bottles, add a little cold water, screw on the trigger and shake. The ink should be thinned enough to spray through the nozzle.

  2. Repeat step 1 with the Warm Yellow, Zesty Orange and Copper Shimmer inks adding a sprinkle of the mica powder to the copper ink to intensify the colour.

  3. Spray a little of each ink into the plastic container, just enough to cover the surface. Lay a sheet of tissue paper in the container and carefully lift it out when it has soaked up the spritzed ink. Place the wet tissue paper onto a glass or heatproof mat.

  4. Use the heat tool to dry the tissue paper.

  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 several times so that you have plenty of coloured tissue paper to print on to.

  6. Iron the tissue paper to remove any creases before the next step.

  7. Tape the Foliage screen to the Screen Sensation frame and use the fixing tape to mask off the Maple leaf before placing the frame back in to Screen Sensation Unit.

  8. Cut the coloured tissue paper into quarters, print the leaf design onto each piece of tissue paper with the Henna Ink and leave to dry.

  9. Cut out each leaf.

  10. Using the rectangle die cut an aperture from the front of the cream card blank.

  11. Spray the back of the leaves with the spray adhesive, then stick them to the left side of the front of the acetate.

  12. Open the card blank and stick some double-sided tape around the aperture, remove the backing tape and fix the acetate in place.

  13. Cut the Dancing in the Rain sentiment from the brown card stock, then use the detail glue to stick the sentiment to the front of the cards in the centre of the acetate.

  14. Size the Melody of Seasons background to 148mm x 210mm in a graphics program and print onto the white Super Smooth cardstock.

  15. Trim the print and stick to the inside of the card with double sided tape. When you close the card you will be able to see the background through the acetate.
