I’ve got another fun card and technique to share with you today! Similar to yesterday’s ‘Floating Technique’, today’s technique also incorporates heat embossing and our ink refills – specifically our white ink.
The “White Wash Technique” that I’m demonstrating for you today requires a light ‘wash’ of the white ink onto coloured card stock, which then allows for another wash, this time with colour.
The results of this technique vary depending on how much ink wash you use, as well as the colour of the card stock. So have fun and experiment!
Irresistible Blooms Card #5
- Starry Sky: 11” x 4 ¼”
- Basic White: 4” x 5 ¼”, plus scrap piece for sentiment
- Real Red: 5” x 3 ¾”, plus scrap piece for die cuts
- Fold the Starry Sky cardstock in half to form card base.
- Glue the Basic White card stock layer to front of card.
- Rub embossing buddy over Real Red cardstock, as well as the scrap piece of Real Red card stock, to remove any static.
- Stamp flowers and leaves with Craft White Ink Pad onto 3 ¾” x 5” (this is your card front), as well as onto the scrap piece for the die cuts. Sprinkle with white embossing powder, shake off excess and set with Heat Tool.
- Squeeze a bit of White Ink Refill onto a block and lightly water down with water painter.
- Add a light layer of the white ink inside the embossed images, let dry.
- Once the white wash has dried, pick up a bit of the other ink refill colours, as in step 6, for the flowers and leaves. Let dry.
- Glue the stamped 3 ¾” x 5” Real Red layer to front of card.
- Die cut the remaining flowers and leaves and place on card front using glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Stamp sentiment with Starry Sky ink pad onto scrap piece of Basic White. Trim and glue to front of card.
- Adhere the Loose Frosted Dots to centre of card.
- Place a mini glue dot on card for Dragonfly Trinket.
Tomorrow’s card is a fun fold that I just LOVE! I will see you then!
Take care & HAPPY STAMPING!
