1- On the Very Vanilla Cardstock stamp with a light neutral color (I used Sahara Sand) the flower image multiple times. I stamped off my cardstock and then stamped on my cardstock (without reinking) to get an even lighter color of ink.
2- Start with the Dark Calypso Coral Blend Marker and outline all the petals
3- Work on one petal at a time, fill in the petal with the Light Calypso Coral Blend Marker.
4- Use the Dark Calypso Coral to add some depth and shape to your petal. Place this color in the center area of the petal. Stay away from the top or edge of the petal.
5- Use a neutral color like Light Smoky Slate Blend Marker to add a shadow along the bottom. Look for where the petals in front would cast a shadow.

Here is a close up of all the layers before they are blended together.
6- Blend all the layers of color with the Light Calypso Coral Blend Marker. Keep moving the color around until the amount of blend you want is achieved.
Note - Alcohol markers do bleed to the back of your cardstock - make sure to protect your surface.
7- Repeat on all the other petals.
8- Use the Color Lifter Blends Marker to add highlights to the tips of each petal. Just swipe once on each tip. The color will lighten slowly so give it some time before using it over and over, it may take away more color than you want.
9- For the leaf follow the same steps. Start by outlining the leaf with the Dark Old Olive Blends Marker.
10- Add any other colors you may want like a yellow and the shadow.
11- Blend everything together with the Light Old Olive Blends Marker.
12- Use the Color Lifter to add a couple highlights.
13- For the center of the flower use the Light Daffodil Delight Blends Marker all over
14- Use the Dark Pumpkin Pie with the fine tip side and outline the circles in that are in the center of the flower. Don't do too much in the center or the colors can get really muddy.
15- Repeat all these steps to the other flowers.
16- You don't have to do this step if you don't want this look- Splatter Whisper White and Soft Suede over the flowers.
I use an aqua painter and the ink from the lid of the ink pad. Pick up the color and then run it over the lid of the aqua painter to splatter on my cardstock. You can watch how I do this in my video below.
17- Stamp a greeting on the strip of Crumb Cake Cardstock in black ink.
18- Layer the flowers on to the Crumb Cake Cardstock with snail adhesive.
19- Use dimensionals and layer this to the Very Vanilla card base.
20- Add the greeting with dimensionals anywhere you like.
21- Lastly, add Shimmery Crystal Effects on to the flowers. This give a little dew drop look to the flowers. Let dry.
All done!
