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
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!
Here's a mini-tutorial of how to do the "whitewashing" technique!
1. Stamp image with Versamark ink on solid-color cardstock (Crumb Cake for this project). Heat Emboss with White Embossing Powder and Heat Tool.
2.Squeeze closed Whisper White Craft Pad to deposit ink in lid. Open pad. Pick up ink from lid with a wet AquaPainter. “Wash” color over embossed image. Allow to air-dry or dry with Heat Tool.
3.Squeeze lid of a Classic inkpad color of choice (Midnight Muse and Primrose Petals for this project). Open pad. Pick up ink from lid with Blender Pen. Apply ink to “white-washed” areas as desired. Add more intense ink color with matching Stampin’ Write Marker.
There you have it! Give Whitewash Coloring a try and let me know what you think!
Gotta go! Krystal's workshop awaits!
Until tomorrow, have a Stampingrox! day!
