Stamp the small poppy onto a piece of sticky note or masking paper. Cut the outline of the flower out just under the line. Mask the previously stamped flower.
Stamp leaves so that the leaf stems are hidden under the flower.
Remove mask from flower. Color with aqua painter as in the next step.
Stamp the small group of poppies stamp onto Shimmery White card stock again using Stazon Ink.
Color stamped images with an aqua painter using Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss inks. Obtain ink by pressing lid of closed ink pad into the inked pad. This puts excess ink onto the lid to dip the aqua painter in. The amount of ink can be diluted by squeezing a drop or two of water into the pool of ink on the inside lid of the ink pad. Alternatively a small clear block can be pressed into an ink pad and this surface then holds ink for aqua painting. See the next step for further suggestions about aqua painting.
Color the flowers with a the lighter color first all over. Then use the darker color to shade in darker areas like the petals behind others or the center. Do the same for the leaves using the lighter color over the entire leaves. Then shade the darker color along the leaf center, veins or where the edge would be beneath the flower. Do the same for the flowers on the envelope and Whisper White insert.
