Take the hoop apart and paint both pieces with white paint; set aside to dry. When dry, cut a piece of the paper collection and using the E6000 glue, adhere it to the inside piece of the hoop. Set aside to dry.
Cut out the Sweetheart Border and put glitter all over it. Set aside to dry. Once dry, glue to the inside of the hoop and set aside while we begin to work on the flowers.
Stamp the leaves using Olive Green Stazon Ink. Color with Bamboo Leaves Ink and cut out using coordinating dies. For the flowers I used several different types of flowers and stamped with various ink colors. Mostly this can be your own choice of colors (I usually stamp with the same color as I use to color the flower, just use a lighter stroke). I love lots of glitter on my flower petals so I used a lot of the Crystal Clear. All the flowers have Prills for the centers. The flowers that have yellow centers have Minnie Pearl Prills colored with Dandelion ink because I didn't have a yellow that I wanted to use. The Prills do take color well if you need to do that. I really don't think you can make a mistake with coloring flowers as Mother Nature loves lots of color! The little birds are stamped in Jet Black ink and colored with Danube Blue ink and their little bellies are colored with Magenta Hue ink then they are glittered.
White flowers are stamped with Magenta Hue ink, Blue flowers are stamped with Danube Blue ink and colored with same. Yellow flowers are stamped with Buttercup and colored with Dandelion ink, Purple flowers are stamped with Deep Purple ink and colored with Cactus Flower ink. The lilacs are stamped with Elderberry ink and colored with Deep Purple ink.
Adhere the flowers and leaves as shown.
