The Colourless Blender!
Today I'm using a stamp set called Garden Picks by Flourishes and I thought I'd use those tiny blossoms as a basis for my Fade To White technique. I'm sure many of you are familiar with the Tip to Tip or Palette technique where you add a dark colour to a light coloured marker and it changes from one colour to the other. Well this is a take on that idea.
IMPORTANT - make sure you scribble off any excess colour on your blender!! If you don't, the colour will seep down into the reservoir and then your Blender will no longer be colourless!
