- Color image as desired with Stampin’ Blends Markers. Color similar flowers/leaves in same color so that they are naturally spaced out over the card. Color first with lighter color then add shading with darker color, returning to blend with lighter color as desired. For “HUGS” – color with Light So Saffron first, then add shading at bottom of letters with Dark So Saffron, returning with the Light So Saffron to soften the edges of shading upwards for an ombre effect.
- Randomly add Pearl Basic Jewels as desired
