Here is my card for today. We learned how to color these flowers yesterday at stamp class. It is so easy! Just get out your sponges and ink the light color and dab till the image is covered. Then ink up the darker shade and dab from the center of the flower pulling out. There you have it!
Thanks Laurie for a great class!
