A Subtle Birthdaycard using the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set with aquick Watercolour Wash Technique Stampin Up UK

Oops, I came back in from the workshop just now and sat at my PC to upload some more video's, took a peek at the blog, only to realise I had forgotten to give you an intro!! Sack me someone please!
So here it is, if somewhat belated

Today I have been playing around with the Watercolour Wash Background Stamp, and have lots of test runs to share with you. The 3 pigment ink pads remained the same, but I played around with the amount of water I added to the stamp, as well as how I cogitated the water to encourage the inks to blend. I hope you enjoy the results of my mornings labour.
