Deceptively simple

 This card looks relatively simple,  but there were a few steps involved.

First, I stamped the Hero ArtsClings "large flower" onto scrap paper, and cut it out right on the outline to make a mask (I've kept it for future use - that's one good thing about making masks, you can reuse them).   I then stamped the same stamp onto the card in SU whisper white pigment ink, and embossed in white.  Then I used the mask to cover this image, and stamped the same image all over the card front in Versamark, and heat set it. This means the main image stands alone without any Versamark ink over the image.

Then, I got out my aqua pen and did a series of washes of the whisper white in onto parts of the main image - I built this up slowly so I would get some areas more intense than others.  

The rest is easy - some see through ribbon, a scrap of white card and a SU sentiment stamp coloured in a Tombow marker to match the main card, and voila!
