Coloring with Colorbox - 8 Step Rose

Happy Scrapping everyone.  I want to share a flower tutorial and how you can color regular plain cardstock with colorbox inks and get an amazing look.

 Supplies: Flower Punch of choice, Colorbox Ink of choice, Smooch, Embossing Tool
Step 1: Punch out 6 flowers
 Step 2: Smooch your punchout -
 (tip you can take the lid of and use a paint brush and paint on the color)
 Step 3: Ink the edges with  a darker shade of ink
 Just a look at what you should end up with after everything is smooched and inked...
 Step 4: Take a toothpick, paintbrush etc and curl each tip of the flower just like in the picture
 Look at what your flower should look like after all the edges have been curled
 Just different angle
 Step 5: Cup the flower with your embossing tool as shown above

 Different angle..
 Step 7: Layer the flowers and stagger each punch and glue.
I use a glue gun for a stronger hold - since I will not be using "stamens"
 Staggered and Glued Flower
 Step 8: Now bunch the flower in your hand by taking the petals and squeezing them up towards the middle

very pretty!

I do not have smooches, Lindys stamp gang should do?

Sure they would work I like smooches cause the colors are very rich and I like the sprayer - more of a mist.

LSG has amazing colors too as well and is just as good. I just have always used Colorbox.
