  • Use Early Espresso ink to stamp the two floral images a total of three times, making sure they do not extend past the outer ends of the umbrella.  It is ok if some fall over the top line as they will be covered.

  • Glue the umbrella under the flowers (where the pencil marks are).
  • Stamp the sentiment in the upper left corner. Glue the umbrella handle, as shown.
