  2. Adhere panel of Caribbean Sea cardstock with rounded corners to inside of card, leaving 1/8” matted edge.
  3. Spritz water on Creative Palette. Place a few drops of the blue and green neon reinkers on the palette. Use a brayer to blend slightly. Place cardstock panels over surface to transfer ink colors, or brayer them over the panel. Set panels aside to dry, and clean palette immediately.

Spread over design at 45˚ smoothly. Replace excess paste to jar. Carefully remove tape and stencil, placing stencil in water to be cleaned immediately.
