I have to tell you that this stamp set is a JOY to work with!! To ink these flowers I inked the blossoms with my pink ink (Tim Holtz's Faded Lipstick) and then took a cotton swab inked with the orange ink (Tim Holtz's Dried Marigold) and dabbed the center of some of the petals. I then just touched the base of the flower with a cotton swab inked with the green ink (Tim Holtz's Shabby Shutters). Since the Tim Holtz inks blend so nicely I didn't have to spritz the image with water prior to stamping.
Since the stems are a separate stamp there is no mixing where the stems cross the blossoms.
This set comes with some great sentiments, but I had a need for this one.
