Stampin' Up! Whitewash Coloring Secret Garden Tutorial!

Good morning! Happy Saturday! Hope you do some fun stamping today! I am going to be stamping with Krystal and her friends today! yay!

Just want to share this fun project from my final Punch/Technique Class for this Stampin' Up! Catalog year using the Whitewash Coloring Technique with the Secret Garden stamp set & framelits and the Elegant Bouquet Embossing Folder (which will soon be retiring).

Note: all products are ©Stampin'Up!™1990-2013 unless otherwise noted

Whitewash 1

We embossed the Basic Black cardstock with the Elegant Bouquet folder and the Big Shot, then sponged the raised areas with Whisper White Craft ink to make them pop! The Happiest Birthday greeting is from the Apothecary Art stamp set, and the cut-out flower images are from Secret Garden!

Whitewash 2
The inside is simply white heat embossed with the verse from the soon-to-be-retired set, You Are Loved, as well as the same flower images as the front!

Here's a mini-tutorial of how to do the "whitewashing" technique!

Whitewash Coloring

1. Stamp image with Versamark ink on solid-color cardstock (Crumb Cake for this project). Heat Emboss with White Embossing Powder and Heat Tool.
