This is a new technique for me ~ and I loved it. For one thing, I enjoy coloring and that’s helpful with so many flowers to do – lol. And I’ve prepared two cards… one is silver embossed while the other is stamped with Misty Moonlight ink. Both are done on Misty Moonlight card stock.

Whitewash w/ Daisy Garden & Embossing.1

With the photo on the left, I inked the Daisy Garden stamp with my VersaMark ink pad then stamped it on the Misty Moonlight card stock that had first been rubbed with my embossing buddy to remove any static or finger prints. I sprinkled the image with silver embossing powder and heat set it. While it was cooling, I prepared my acrylic block by placing it on the White stamp pad to get a good amount of ink on it. I also added a dab of White reinker to the same block. Then I set to coloring using my blender pen as the tool of choice. I colored all the flowers with a basic layer of white ink then followed by adding more white where I wanted it. I used the reinker for additional highlights. I attached this to a Basic White panel with liquid glue, put dimensionals on the back then added that to the Misty Moonlight card base.

Whitewash Technique w/ Daisy Garden.2

With this photo, I stamped the Daisy Garden (yes, using my Stamparatus) with Misty Moonlight ink. I then took an acrylic block and ‘inked’ it on the White stamp pad. I did this by simply putting the acrylic block directly to the ink pad and lifting it. I also added a drop of White reinker to the block. I used my my blender pen as a paint brush to add color to the flowers. As the ink dries it becomes more pale and therefore more coloring is needed to get the desired amount of white to the flowers. I used the drop of reinker when I wanted more highlights in detail and this shows nicely in this photo. it does not show as well on the silver embossed card – at least not in the photo. I added the panel to a Night of Navy piece, wrapped a length of Seam

Binding ribbon around it and tied a knot. I put dimensionals on the back and adhered it to a Basic White card base. I added another small bow with a glue dot, then three Pearl Basic Jewels. I will do the same sentiment as the above card, but use Misty Moonlight ink in lieu of embossing. It will get dimensionals & be added on top of the ribbon. I simply forgot!!!

On the embossed card I made what I call a ‘fussy bow’ using the Seam Binding Ribbon in White and the Silver Cording from the Simply Elegant Trim pack. (This is a great bow for hand delivered cards!) For the sentiment on the front, I used the Love & Happiness stamp set, stamped it in VersaMark ink then sprinkled with Silver Embossing powder and heat set. I put dimensionals on the back and and added it appropriately. For a final touch, I added three Pearl Basic Jewels and the card front was done.

For the inside of these cards…

Whitewash daisy garden, inside.4

For both cards I stamped the sentiment from Love & Happiness stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Basic White panel. For the card on the left, the panel was adhered directly to the inside of the Misty Moonlight card base. For the card on the right, I adhered the panel to a Night of Navy piece then into the Basic White card.

Love this technique and can’t wait to do it again, using another floral stamp!
