Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images. Use Forget-Me-Not and Vivid Chartreuse to color the hydrangea and leaves. Color in the circles too. Use the same colors for the petals. Place the petals in the Hydrangea Shaping Mold, lightly mist with water and send through die cutting machine. Finish shaping petals and hydrangea with the stylus from Deluxe Flower Shaping kit. Use double dots to layers all 3 circles onto the center of hydrangea, starting with largest to smallest. Use hot glue to attach the petals onto the hydrangea, creating a full, rounded look.
