Whitewashed Embossed Greeting card

by Furbert (more by this designer)

Description from Furbert:

5.25 x 7.25 inch card 5 1/8 x 7 1/8 in. white card stock paper 5 x 7 inch. kraft card stock. Stamped Draft paper with versamark embossing ink. Stamped image several times moving it in different directions and stamping off the edge. Then heat embossed with white embossing powder. Transferred white chalk ink to protective craft sheet and spayed a little water next to it. Using a tiny 10/0 paint brush dipped in the water and then into white ink and white washed the stamped design with the white. It dried quickly. Then I did the same with a green chalk ink + (water) and with clean brush applied the green to the leave shapes at the medial end not filling in the complete shape with the green--Sort of blending it into the whitewashed area. Then I did the same technique with a blue +(water to the flowered part of design. Finally used an orange color in the center of flower. After all dried I buffed the embossed image to get any ink off that had gotten on embossed area. Measured the blue satin ribbon and used ultra tape on back of kraft sheet to adhere it to front of card. Made a double bow and adhered it with a zot to front of card. Used a tape roller to adhere the kraft topper to white card stock and did the same to adhere the that topper to the dark blue card base. Have not finished the inside yet, or put a sentiment on the front. Think I will put some dazzle dots to the centers of the flowers when I finish the inside.
