Step 6: Die cut three of the same flower from the Wendy Vecchi Make Art Thank You Stamp, Die and Stencil Set. Color them with Forget-Me-Knot Blendable Dye Ink and a Blending Tool. Be sure to use the coordinating flower stencil so the edges stay ink free. Then fussy cut layers of the flowers so that you can add dimension and layers to the flower when it is assembled.
