Whitewash Flowers Birthday Wishes


Birthday is the theme at The Squirrel and the Fox Challenge this week and I decided to share a birthday card I made using the Whitewash Technique. Here is a link to a tutorial, but basically you emboss an open image with white embossing powder on kraft paper. Then you cover the image with white kraft ink refill using a water brush. Let dry or dry with a heat gun and color with markers and blender pen. I cut out the flowers (from Stampin' Up) and popped them up with pop dots over a leafy diecut.  The birthday sentiment is also from Stampin' Up.

I am also entering this card in the Anything Goes challenge at Divas by Design.
