Another White Wash Techniqe

The white wash technique is relatively simple.
Begin by stamping your image with Versa Mark
or white pigment ink on craft paper.  
Use fineline white embossing powder.
Now using some type of water color to
"wash" the image and then add soft accents
of color.  I like to start with the color
at the bottom of the petal and
use a fairly damp brush to pull the
color outward until it blends into the white.

The stamp is a PSX or Personal Stamp Exchange.
They have been out of business for a number or years.
This series of stamps are known in the older stampers
world as "The Botanicals".

The ribbon at the bottom was die cut
from Cheery Lynn Designs Alison's Ribbon.

Hint - water colors can be pencils, crayons, 
markers scribbled on plastic, kids water colors,
tubes of water colors, pull ink from water based
ink pads, re-inkers.
