Use the Stack and Store daubers to color the images. For the prancing deer, use Sunflower and Sepia inks. Use Cactus Flower for the reindeer's collar and Forget-me-not for the eyes. For the sleigh and gifts, use Forget-me-not, Cactus Flower, Sunflower and Vivid Chartreuse inks. Use Cactus Flower on the poinsettia centers and a soft touch of Forget-me-not on the edges. For the branch, use Sunflower and Sepia. Use Cactus Flower, Forget-me-not, Vivid Chartreuse and Sunflower for the ornaments. Use Vivid Chartreuse and a touch of Forget-me-not for the pine sprays.
For a quick and easy shaping, use the poinsettia shaping mold to shape the poinsettias. For more tips on using the flower shaping molds, watch the tutorial at https://youtu.be/FSdPL7nXvQE. Or if you prefer, you can use the shaping stylus instead, and use it to shape the rest of the images.
