Use the Dark and Light Shaded Spruce Stampin' Blends Markers to color in the rim and squares on the turtle's shell.
Use the Dark and Light Soft Suede Stampin' Blends Markers to color in the turtle's belly shell and the spaces between the squares on the shell. Also use them to color in the dirt/shadow beneath the turtle. Just be careful not to color over the stamped sentiment.
Use the fine tip of the Dark Soft Suede Stampin' Blends Marker to color a little around the turtle's eyeball.
Use the Color Lifter Marker as needed to remove excess color.
