Good Morning Crafters
Today we are sharing Sam's step by step using Lindsay Mason's Tattoo Bird.
We have a stockist locator on the home page of the Personal Impressions website to help you locate a stockist near you.
She has used the following products:

Dylusions Inks
Distress Inks
Versamark ink pad
Step 1

To create a Background using Cheap Shaving Foam.( no added moistures )
Spray a good amount and smooth it out.

Step 2
Spray with your favourite colours, a variety of Dylusions inks.

 Step 3

Using the end of a medium sized paint brush, make a pattern through the colours.

Step 4 

Place a piece of card on top and lightly press.

 Step 5

Pull the card away from the foam and scrape off the excess foam with a spatula to reveal the pattern.

 Step 6

Stamp the bird with versamark and heat emboss with black embossing powder, and the word Joy.
Using the tail stamp around the edges.
