White Wash Technique with Celebrate Sunflowers

What is the White Wash Technique with Celebrate Sunflowers?  It’s a simple technique using a White Craft Ink Pad and a Blender Pen.  Use a Clear Acrylic Block to grab some ink from the pad to use for coloring.  Make sure to use a shade darker ink for stamped images so the white wash doesn’t over power the stamped image.  In this case, the sunflower.  The video below has step by step directions to help create this card.
