Watercolour Birthday

Hello all, I am getting this one in under the wire. This is my second entry into Altenew's monthly inspiration challenge.

I used a water colour wash technique described in this video. I white heat embossed my stamped images and then painted with distress inks. I spattered yellow, blue and black ink over the piece and went over the flowers with Wink of Stella. I think this method would have worked better if the images had larger open spaces. I didn't get the contrast I wanted with the distress inks since I don't own a lot of colours, so I went in with a coloured pencil to darken some of the shadows.

Stamps - Remember This, Birthday Greeting, Peony Bouquet, Freeform Greenery (Altenew)
Dies - Stitched Rectangles (Lil Inkers), Building Blocks (PTI)
Paper - Watercolour Paper (Ranger), Black CS, White CS (PTI)
Ink - VersaMark, White EP, Distress Inks - Cracked Pistachio, Mustard Seed, Candied Apple, Peeled Paint, Wink of Stella, Prismacolor Pencils
Other - Clear Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh), fun foam
