Coloring with Colorbox Paintbox

Prepare card by cutting Forest green cardstock 5.25” x 10.5”. Fold in half. Stamp the outer edges of the front with leaf 02.183.D page 247, using Versamark. Clean the stamp. Over stamp with the same stamp using gold colorbox ink. Set aside.
Black emboss the image 30.024.P page 247 on white cardstock. I choose colors from the Pastel Paintbox to color my image.
Lightly swipe Apple Green over the four center squares, overlapping slightly into the other squares. Repeat as above using Heliotrope for the four outside corners. Color the remaining eight squares with Coral.
In a circular motion, lightly rub the colors off the embossed image with a cotton ball. Too much pressure will drag the black so be sure and do this gently.
Color the three small and only one large flower with a red marker. Color all the leaves with a green marker. Highlight some of the uncolored petals with a white gel pen. Add centers to all the flowers with a gold pen.
Trim close to the outside embossing lines. Glue to a piece of white cardstock that measures 4.25” square. Mount to the center of your prepared card.
