    3. Copy the flower pattern off onto tracing paper. Using a stylus and transfer paper, transfer the pattern onto the plaque.

    5. Using a liner brush and Mistletoe Green, paint the stem of the flower.
    6. Using a #4 flat brush and Mistletoe Green, paint in the leaves.
    7. Using a #4 flat brush, paint the petals of the flower and the flower center Tuscan Red.
    8. Using a liner brush and Pumpkin, outline the petals.
    9. Using a liner brush and Rich Espresso, paint the crosshatch lines across the center of the flower and paint around the flower center. In between those lines, use the handle end of a liner brush to make little Deep Buttermilk dots.
