white wash technique. . . .

was featured on a Stamp TV video recently and I wanted to try it.



This pretty tulip stamp is from Stacey Stamps and I have had it for a long time.  I am not sure if these stamps are still available.  The word, Tulips, is a stamp from Impression Obsession. 

This technique is easy and I think it makes the flowers look like vellum.  You just use an aqua brush with white ink to color the white embossed image.  Add a bit of color by scribbling a marker on a palette and picking it up with the same aqua brush.  Or, leave it all white if you choose.

Don't know of anything to link this to, but I am planning to send it off to an online friend. 

Have a great day!
