To achieve a softer looking flower spray water on the edges of the flowers. The colors chosen on some of the flowers were red, orange, blue, and purple. You want the colors to fall in the valleys of the cups. The buttons on top of the cups make this work. Place the color green in the valley of the cloth, and again spray water to give the greenery a softer look.
