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.
