Watercolouring in Perfect Plum on Crumb Cake using Birthday Blooms by Stampin' Up!

Today I have another one of the cards we will be making at January's class using Birthday Blooms. I am loving designing this class using this fab stamp set and really wanted to used the whitewash technique on this card to make this simple but impactful card...
 I stamped the large flower from the set in the corners then added a few small flowers either side of them to extend the image reach and heat embossed them all using silver powder.
Then, to colour, I used a blender pen (or a fairly dry aqua painter) to colour the image using white craft ink, dab excess ink away and dry using a heat tool or (leave for a few hours) then colour over using a clean blender pen; I used Perfect Plum and Mint Macaron for this card.
*If you'd like to see I made a photo tutorial HERE last year*
TIP: Keep one blender pen (or just one end) only for white craft ink as it doesn't clean off easily.
 This sentiment is also from the set, Birthday Blooms.
 Nice and flat for posting but still a special looking card. And yes, I was tempted to add ribbon but as you can see I resisted ;-)

So, I hope you like todays card as much as I did designing and making it? Let me know in the comments :-)
Thanks for looking today,
