4. Affix mask to panel and the “Fan Pattern” stencil right on top of it, then use a Sponge Dauber to pick up Radiant Neon Electric Blue and Electric Green inks and sponge all over the masked stencil. Remove stencil and mask from panel.

5. Using an InkBlusher, pick up some Radiant Neon Electric Blue inks and color the edges of this panel.

Tip: You can use strips of masking tape to avoid the center from getting colored (see picture above)

6. Cut panel from white cardstock slightly smaller than first panel. Cut out a circle slightly larger than the pattern circle on the other panel. Position die cut so that the smaller, stenciled circle from the underneath panel peeks through.
