Mount the large flower bouquet image from the Wonderful Romance Set on Block E. Ink it up with the Memento Pad. Stamp onto Grid Paper once. Then, WITHOUT re-inking, stamp it in the center of the large white rectangle.
Pick out the matching large bouquet framelit from the Wonderful Floral Framelits. Place the stamped bouquet image on the Cutting Pad on the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the bouquet framelit on top so it is centered over the stamped bouquet. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot. Use the Die Brush to remove pieces.
Place the cut out bouquet image on top of some paper on your work surface (Grid Paper works great). You need to make sure that you protect your work surface with paper as the Stampin' Blends Markers do bleed through.
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 dark colors first and then the light colors to blend the colors and color in the spaces. Work on one area at a time so the inks will be wet and will blend easier.
Use the Light and Dark Old Olive Markers to color in the bigger leaves and stems.
Use the Light and Dark Highland Heather Markers to color in the flowers.
Use the Light and Dark Soft Sea Foam Markers to color in the tiny leaves and stems.
Use the Color Lifter Marker as needed to remove excess ink.
Adhere the colored bouquet cut out to the vellum rectangle so the large flower on the outer left side touches the left side of the vellum, the tiny leaves on the outer right side touch the right side of the vellum, and the point of the largest leaf is about 1/4" from the top of the vellum.
Put SNAIL on the back of the vellum rectangle where it will be hidden by the bouquet cut out. Adhere the vellum to the center of the Wood Textures Designer Paper rectangle.
