- Before you begin, put on the ProCraft gloves to protect your hands from the dye inks.
- Using a compressed sponge, apply red, teal and blue metallic inks on the edge and swipe in a semi circle pattern on a 4 inch by 2-3/4 inch sheet of white matte cardstock beginning at the top left. Let dry.
- Again using a compressed sponge, apply Christmas Tree green Rainbow ink applied to the edge and swipe the card prepared in Step l horizontally and vertically. (The interesting effect is the metallics seem to resist most of the Rainbow inks applied over the top.)
- Sponge Black Rainbow Ink over the entire card randomly using the flat side of your compressed sponge. When dry edge with a gold Krylon leafing pen and heat set.
- Using a glossy white card 5-1/4 by 4 inches, apply metallic silver ink randomly leaving some white space and edge with the gold Krylon leafing pen and heat set.
- On a small piece of vellum, stamp the Far East News image with black Brilliance ink and heat set. Then tear as shown and edge with the Brilliance black.
- Ink the vase image from the Japanese set with VersaMark and emboss with black embossing powder on a scrap of robin egg blue cardstock. Cut out vase and edge in gold.
