Everyone loved the colored pencil version but not many people love to color that way. I had seen some doing the whitewash technique with the Whisper White Craft Ink and water on Crumb Cake. Decided to give it a try.
First, I inked up the Magnolia stamp with Versamark and then Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and heat embossed with Clear embossing powder. I am not a fan of black embossing powder, even though I use the Embossing Buddy, there is always a stray speck of black somewhere.
Mixed some Whisper White Craft Ink Refill with water and used an Aqua Painter to apply a white wash all over the image, then set it aside to dry for about an hour. Then I put some Rose Gold Shimmer paint on a clear block and mixed it with water and used it to shade the flower, it's so sparkly in person. On the leaves, I used Garden Green all over and then used Shaded Spruce along the edges. Then a little Pineapple Punch for the center of the flower.
Let dry before assembling the card.
