White Wash Watercolour Just For You

Hi guys

I'm here this afternoon to share a card I've made after seeing the inspiration card at Muse this week, which is a gorgeous design by Beverley Brown at Uniko Studio.

I've also used the white wash watercolour technique which I originally saw a while ago on Beverley's blog here.  I've not tried it before but I really love the effect, although mine is a lot paler than the ones in Beverley's tutorial.  The kraft card I used is quite a pale tone so I wanted to keep the flowers delicate.

I'd love to know what you think.  Here it is...



I stamped the flowers in white pigment ink and then heat embossed with white powder.  Next I squished a white pigment ink pad onto an acrylic block, mixed this with a little water and used a waterbrush to white wash the blooms.  I then did the same with the three coloured pigment inks and gently washed the colour out from the centre of each of the flowers.  I finished off by stamping the sentiment and adding some iridescent gems.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Stampin' Up - Flower Shop, Clearly Besotted - Butterfly Wishes
  • Ink: Versa Color - White, Orchid, Cyan and Canary; Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Gems: Kanban - Pastel Bling

Here is Beverley's beautiful card we were to use for our inspiration:




I'd also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Seize the Birthday - Anything Goes
CAS on Sunday - Challenge #36 - Birthday
Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #101 - Anything Goes
Creative Inspirations - Challenge 271 - Clean and Simple


Thanks for popping by.  I hope to be back again later to share more with you.  

Bye for now
