I have received the next circle journal. The theme for this journal is techniques and fun folds. I decided that I would showcase the whitewash technique.
Stamp and heat emboss your image onto a piece of crumb cake card stock. Pick up white craft ink with your aqua painter and colour in the embossed image. Allow the white ink to dry, and then use your colour to paint over it. I used blushing bride and pear pizzaz re-inkers, but you can squish some ink onto the top of your ink pad.
If you are in Australia and don’t have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I would love to help you with your stamping. If you would like to join my team to support your stamping addiction, contact me for more details.
Below are the products that I used to create these cards. If you would like to purchase any of them, clicking on the picture will take you to my online store.
I said that I was going to share some of the techniques that came back in my Circle Journal. This post is the first one.
This is a lily that was growing in my garden. The darker edges inspired my to use this technique with the Lasting Lily stamp set. Below is my card.
Start by inking your stamp in a light coloured ink. I used So Saffron, and then gently roll the edges of the stamp on a darker ink pad (Lovely Lipstick) and stamp.
Be very aware of which ink pad you are using first. The lighter ink won’t have any effect on the dark pad, but if you get confused and roll a darkly inked stamp onto a pale colour pad, you will mess up your ink pad.
Lasting Lily is one of the stamp sets that you can choose as a freeby during Sale-a-bration. If you spend $180, you can choose this set as a free item. This is the only way that you can get this set, it cannot be purchased.
For the fist time (and to make things even more exciting), Stampin’ Up! is coming out with framelits that co-ordinate with the Sale-a-bration stamps. One of the sets is for the Lasting Lily (see the sample on the picture below). These will be available from the 1st – 31st March. Contact me if you would like more details about these framelits.
