This set is actually designed to do multi step stamping but I decided to use my alcohol markers with it instead. See tutorial below.
Step 1: Using your lightest marker think about where your going to want your shadows and lay down the maker in those areas sort of like a road map. In this case I have colored in where the flower petals are folding inward away from the sun.
Step 2: Using your mid tone marker begin in the shadows but do not pull the color all the way out to where the lightest shadow is.
Step 3: With your darkest marker color in just the creases. The areas farthest from the sun. Petals tend to be one in front of the other so a top petal will cast a shadow onto a petal underneath.
Step 4: Now we will repeat reversing the colors working dark to light. Since we just added the darkest we will use the midtone in this step. You will lightly extend the darkest shadow towards the light. My best descriptive way to explain this is to pull the dark into the middle. This allows the colors to blend.
Step 5: Now we do the same thing using the lightest color. Drag the medium color towards the lightest. I am purposely leaving the tips of the flower white.
Step 6: Sometimes when you go from dark to light you lost some of the wonderful contrast created by your darkest marker so in this step I have gone back into the shadows using the darkest marker.
Step 7: Here I just softened the lines left from the darkest marker. Just barely blending it at the tips where the two colors meet.
Lastly as you can see below I did use the lightest marker and I pulled the lightest color out just a bit closer to the edge but I still left a little white space. This is the reflection of the light and is the first area that the sunlight will hit.
Above I have used the brushable glue and added Berry Red Flocking into the very deepest ares of the flower. It gives it a nice softly raised feel to the rose and will awe your recipient.
For a finishing touch I used the sentiment from the Rose Heart stamp set and heat embossed it using the Black Detail Embossing Powder. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops in Autumn Red. I simply colored in the heart with a marker as well.
