Welcome to the Technique Squad Blog Hop. Our theme today is the Whitewash Technique. I love White Craft ink so as you might imagine, I love the Whitewash Technique. Here’s the card I created.
The Whitewash technique looks great with a dark background. Here I chose Pebbled Path and heat embossed the image in white. In the video included below, the same stamp set was embossed in gold and then Whitewashed.
INstructions for Nature’s sweetness Just a Note Card
- Cut a Pebbled Path card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″.
- Cut the patterned paper 3 3/4″ x 5″ and mat on a piece of Pecan Pie paper cut 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″.
- Adhere the matted paper to the card front.
- Cut the Ledger sheet of patterned paper to 1 1/4″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to the front.
- On a piece of Pebbled Path stamp the large stamp from the Lovely & Sweet bundle with VersaMark ink. Sprinkle with white embossing powder and melt with the heat tool.
- On a clear block, squeeze 2-3 drops of White Craft Ink re-inker. Add a few drops of water from the smallest brush water painter. Mix the ink and water.
- Use the water painter dipped in white ink to color in all of the images of the flower.
- Use your heat tool to help the white ink to dry. When dry gently blot the ink off the embossing.
- Press a small block into your Wild Wheat ink pad. Use a blender pen to pick up the ink from the block and color in the two flowers. Blot the excess ink off when done.
- Ink a block with Old Olive ink and use your blender pen to color in the leaves.
- Use Pecan Pie ink and a block to color in the seed pods. Wipe ink off the embossing in all the images.
- Die cut the flower with the corresponding die.
- Use dimensionals to adhere the flower to the card front.
- On a scrap of Basic White, stamp “a little note to say hello” from the Lovely & Sweet stamp set in Pebbled Path ink. Die cut with the sentiment tag from the Gorgeously Made dies. Pop up with dimensionals.
- On a 5 1/4″ x 4″ piece of Basic White, stamp the small cross hatch stamp from Notes of Nature in the lower left corner AFTER stamping off on scrap paper. Add the small leafy plant also from Notes of Nature on top. (Watch the video if unsure of which stamps.)
