Day 4 of our Beautiful Moments Week. This card is a technique I have wanted to try for a while. I thought this set was a great one to try it. This technique is known as the Whitewash Technique. Have you tried it before?
Here is my card.
To create the Whitewash:
Stamp your image on dark coloured cardstock (Crumb Cake used here) using Versamark and heat emboss with White Embossing Powder. Using White Reinker, drop 1-2 drops on to a clear block. Add some drops of water using the Aquapainter and mix the 2 together. Pick up some white ink with the Aquapainter and paint the image in white. Allow this to dry completely. It may take a little time.
Once dry pick up some colour from the inkpads using the Aquapainter. (Be sure to clean the Aquapainter after using the white ink). Paint the image in your colour choices.
To finish the card:
Diecut the card. I have used the new Nature’s Thoughts Dies.
On a side note: How pretty is this die?? Something a little different to the stitched effect. Using the decorative die in the Nature’s Thoughts Dies diecut a strip of white card. Trim to size and then adhere to the back of the Crumb Cake card.
Adhere a piece of the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration on to Thick Whisper White card. Raise up the stamped Crumb Cake card piece off the card using Dimensionals.
Stamp a Sentiment from the So Sentimental stamp set and diecut using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies. Raise that up off the card.
Hope you get to try this technique.
Be sure to get your Beautiful Moments stamp set in store but also I think you need to grab the Nature’s Thoughts Dies too. They will be a great addition. I will talk more about these another time but see them in store -> HERE.
