Next, I want to have a smaller piece of paper. It’s the so saffron and because we’re working with the old olive color, I just thought it would be so nice to do that. And it’s a smaller piece by a quarter of an inch, just a tip on the side. If you are going to be layering and you want to cut a piece so it’s smaller than the piece that you’re layering, you wanted to have a quarter of an inch variants on the length and on the height. Width and height, up and down, across, I don’t know how you would say that but you want about a quarter of an inch and so, when you slide it, you'll go ahead and it will fit and frame out really nicely, and I will tape that. Using the snail adhesive, I love that because you don’t have to pick off little pieces of tape and I’m just going to lay that right on top. Again, I want to layer once more, so, I've taken a piece of white paper. I measured my green paper and I know that I want it a quarter of an inch smaller on the width and the height. That’s what I’m going to be stamping a pretty flower on. When you have a stamp that is one image but you wanted two different colors and you’re using an inkpad, you’re really only going to get one color on that. So, we are going to use the brush markers to color that in. This color is regal rose and it has a really pretty brush at the end of it. And I’m going to color it right there on the flower and the little flower bud right there and then also do the same thing with the old olive marker using the brush tip. I’m just going to color that stem, pretty easy to do that. This way, you've got two colors. When you’re using the stamp and the markers, you do want to huff on it, just to make sure that it’s all wet. If the phone rang and you put your stamps down and you came back, you wouldn’t have to put more ink on it using the markers. You can actually just huff on it and it will be fine. And then you have your soft image of the flower.
