Cover most of the mat board with Butter ink by applying it straight from the inkpad using a tapping motion.
Apply the Chambray ink across the sky area, wrapping ink around the upper corners of the board.
Apply Mint across the bottom half of the board, forming the field area.
Apply Plumeria ink, using the edge of the pad, on top of the Mint color, forming fields of lavender. Finally, apply Black Cherry ink along the bottom edge of the board. Allow to dry.
Using Wicked Black Archival Ink, stamp images from Graphic 45 cling sets onto the mat board as listed below, (as shown) and allow to dry.

Using the hobby knife, follow the stamp image and gently scratch—or etch—back into the mat board, revealing the original white. Continue to selectively etch the board, creating highlight detail, forming free hand doodles, etc. Brush off etching areas periodically and check your design, being careful not to over-do the etching.
