This is such a beautiful stamp set. I changed up the workshop by creating some cards using the Mix In Paper Packet . On the first card I used the
Sugarplum Shimmer Brush to color the flowers. For the other two cards, I used a waterbrush and lifted ink from my ink pads. For this technique, you squeeze the lid and bottom together and when you take the lid off some of the ink remains on the inside of the lid. You can then pick up the color using a waterbrush and color the flowers for a watercolor look. More water creates a lighter color and less water results in a darker color.
