Use same ink on the edges of panel and attach onto card base.

Use the Stack and Store daubers for precision coloring on the images. Cut the plumeria strip from the lovebird image. Use Cantaloupe and Tangelo on the plumerias. Use Bamboo Leaves and New Sprout on the leaves. Use Lipstick Red and Cantaloupe on the flamingos. Shape flamingos, plumerias, leaves and attach onto card as pictured. Use Dries Clear glue along with Lion's Mane glitter to add sparkle over card as desired. Use same glue to add Heart of Gold prills to plumeria centers.
