Place the stamped circle on top of Grid Paper to protect your work surface. The Stampin' Blends Markers bleed through so you need to protect your work surface.
Use the Stampin' Blends Markers to color in the image. Start with lighter colors first and then add darker colors for shadows and shading. Use the lighter color again to blend the lines. Work on small areas at a time as the colored areas need to be wet for easier blending. If you go outside of the lines, use the Color Lifter Marker to remove color.
