I Brake For White Washed Flowers

Hi everybody!

I really love the stamp set that I'm using today.  It is called Ballerina, Flowers and Numbers from I Brake For Stamps.  Here's what it looks like:



This set has so any possibilities!  I am envisioning mixed media projects for the future but today I used the White Wash Technique.  I used the stamp with the flowers, script and dots, the butterfly and the love infinity stamp.  I love how it turned out!

I embossed the flowers with white embossing powder, took a water brush and used white pigment ink to water color the flowers to give them the 'white wash' look.  Let this dry or heat dry.  Then I just used some Fired Brick distress ink with water to give the flowers a soft color.  I had originally embossed the script white too but I decided I wanted the script part black so I masked off the flowers, stamped in black and fussy cut the flowers out that I had embossed white and used pop dots to give it some height next to the script.  I embossed the small butterfly with black ink and clear embossing powder and used a little of the Fired Brick distress ink to coordinate with the flowers and used pop dots with it also.  I stamped the love infinity symbol stamp at the bottom and used some black glitter enamel dots on each side.  I used a distress tool to distress the edges of the black and kraft card stock.  Finally, I used clear Wink of Stella on the butterfly.
