Over at Splitcost Stampers the Mix-Ability challenge is White Wash. The challenge number is Mix136. When I think of white wash I think of furniture that is painted a color and then White is washed over it. I wanted to mimic this on my card. The challenge of a Mix-Ability is to use at least two different mediums. I decide to use Acrylic Paint, embossing, and ink.
Here are the details:
- The card base is Mint Macaron cut at 5 1/2 inches and scored at 4 1/4 inches
- The layers are Whisper White (5 3/8 by 4 1/8), Calypso Coral (5 1/4 by 4), and Mint Macaron (5 by 3 3/4)
- On the Mint layer add a wash of Titanium White paint using a wet sponge. Let dry (or dry with a heat gun) And a second layer of pint. Let dry. Add a third layer of paint to the very top and bottom of the card.
- Stamp the flower from Remarkably You using Versa Mark Ink. I masked one of the flowers with tape then inked and pulled the mask off before stamping. Use black embossing powder on the stamped image. Heat the embossed image to set the embossing powder. (before you emboss it is a fabulous idea to use the embossing buddy)
- Use a aqua painter to add color to the flower. I used Calypso Coral. I used Stampin’ Wright Marker in Mint Macaron for the stem and the stamen
- Stamp the Sentiment using StazOn Jet Black ink. Make sure you use the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to line it up just right. The sentiment is from Best Thoughts (I seem to be using this one a-Lot!!!!!
Supply List: Remember besides Stampin’ Up! products you will need Acrylic Titanium White Paint and a natural sponge
