Watch this tutorial to see how to shape the plumerias.

Instructions: Create 5" x 6.5" card base using white card stock. Select background paper from paper collection for matting on card base. Ink all edges using sponge dauber and pink ink. Adhere to card base using pop dots. Locate yellow patterned paper in paper collection and die cut using largest dies in Spellbinders Pierced Rectangles dies. Adhere to card base using pop dots. Die cut a piece of watercolor paper using the middle sized dies from within Pierced Rectangles. Swipe blue oxide ink onto clear stamp block, stamp onto watercolor paper and then spread using water and paint brush. Heat set using heat tool. Repeat with the yellow and green colors brushing them slightly into one another with water and paint brush, drying between applications. Using paint brush, splash some water droplets onto colored watercolor paper and heat set. This will give the the illusion of oxide effect. Splash a few droplets of Dylusion Spray onto watercolor paper. Heat set from straight above the paper carefully so that droplets will dry but not run or set aside to air dry. Stamp sentiment onto watercolor paper as shown. Adhere to card base using pop dots. 

Stamp one inking of a flamingo, four curly foliage illustrations, the set of three smaller leaves, one swirled leaf and each of the smallest and mid sized plumeria flower pieces onto watercolor paper using black ink. Using oxide inks watercolor all embellishments. Heat set and adhere color again to achieve some darker areas. Die cut using coordinating dies. Shape and assemble two medium sized flowers and one small. Adhere to card front as shown and then shape and adhere leaf clusters and flamingo. Die cut sentiment from a light turquoise paper from within the paper collection and add a touch of blue and yellow ink giving it an ombre look. Apply to card front. Adhere dew drops to card base and glitter to flower tips using a dries clear glue.
