I recently watched a YouTube video on something called the Whitewash Technique and was eager to try it. Here is the card I made using that technique...
The first thing I needed was a stamp that would work for this, perferrably a flower....I decided that this "Blooming Graden" stamp set by Penny Black had the best flower to use. Other supplies I used are craft paper (the brown natural craft cardstock) white Ranger super fine embossing powder, Ranger Inkssentials Emboss It clear embossing ink pad, CTMH "White Daisy" ink pad, Distress Ink and/or Distress Markers, a heat gun, a fine paint brush (or water brush), and water....and until I make my own YouTube video on this technique I will give you the link to the one I watched...click HERE to see the video for instructions. I would give directions here on my blog but I think it is easier and clearer to watch the video. Feel free to ask me if you have any questions.
Other added touches.....I used a Martha Stewart corner punch (don't have the name), ribbon, and pearls. I used the CTMH "White Daisy" ink pad to stamp the butterflies which are from the "Butterflies" stamp set by Hot Off The Press. The label is die from the Paper Artist cutting dies set "9Tiny Tags & Little Labels" also by Hot Off The Press. The sentiment is is from MSE! "Birthday" stamp set. I inked half of the label in "Picked Raspberry" and half in "Frayed Burlap", and stamped the sentiment in "Frayed Burlap"
This is such an elegant technique, I hope you try it!
