Make sure you have some paper (Grid Paper works great) at your work space.to protect the work surface. The Stampin' Blends Markers will bleed through the cardstock that you are coloring so you need to protect your work surface.
Place the stamped lady image on the work paper and start coloring with the Stampin' Blends Markers. The markers have a brush tip for coloring in larger areas and a fine tip for coloring in smaller areas. Use the light colors first and add highlights with the darker colors. If needed to blend the colors, go over things again with the lighter colors. Work on one area at a time so the inks will be wet and will blend easier.
Use the Dark and Light Petal Pink Markers to color in the lady's face, neck,and arms.
Use the Dark and Light Poppy Parade Markers to color in the top of the lady's dress and the underside of her hat.
Use the Color Lifter Marker to remove any color that got anywhere you don't want it.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the lady. Make sure you leave some white space below the bottom of the image to be able to adhere the dress petals.
If you haven't already done so, use the Daisy Punch to punch out two daisies from the Petal Pink background design from Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper.
Tip: Keep the scraps to stamp the lady's hat on and to punch out an extra petal or two if needed.
Use Paper Snips to cut off the petals on the two daisies. Throw away the remaining circles from the center of the daisies.
Put a tiny dot of Fine-Tip Glue Pen on the narrow end of each petal (one at a time) and adhere them in layers to the lady image. Start just below her waist and adhere 4 overlapping petals. Adhere four more in a layer below that tucking the ends up under the previous layer. Do another layer of 4 the same way. End with a layer of 3 or 4 petals in the same way.
Re-ink the top of the lady image using the Memento Pad. Stamp the top of the image onto a scrap of the Petal Pink background design from Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper so you get the hat.
Use Paper Snips to carefully cut out the top of the hat.
