How to create a Watercolor Wash with images

How about a simple card with an impressive technique?  Today, I’m going to share with you how to create a watercolor wash with images.  The images in the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set are perfect for this watercolor wash technique and the dies from the coordinating Many Layered Blossoms really make the whole thing come alive.

The watercolor wash technique allows the colors to blend and bleed into one another creating a muted background, while the die-cut flowers really bring the flowers into focus.
