Are you still ready for 5 more video this week? 
Today video I will teach you how to shade color on the big definitely dahlia stamp. The best tip is to make sure to use a scrap paper to wipe the ink off the dauber in between use. Best to ink the entire flower with the lightest color then using the sponge dauber to had the other color. Top one I use daffodil delight for the main color then sponge with crumb cake. I love how this turn out and sweet sugarplum with crumb cake is another great combo. 
I listed all supplies for all the cards at the bottom but will list the color for each card under each one.
