Technique: rub your inkpads onto your craft mat, next to each other but not touching, covering about the same size area as your paper. Spritz with water. You can used a bone folder or palette knife to blend the colour into each other. Place a piece of White tissue paper on top and let it absorb the colour. Carefully lift the tissue paper and place it onto some paper towel to dry.

Place some adhesive sheet onto a piece of white cardstock and remove the wax layer so the entire sheet is sticky. Scrunch up the tissue paper, open it up and stick it to the card. Punch out your tulips with the Tulip Builder Punch.
