Still addINKtive Spot That Stamp Set - Secret Garden

Hello Friends,
Today's post is for the Still addINKtive Spot That Stamp Set and this week we are looking at Secret Garden and Hearts a Flutter.  I am trying a new technique which seems to have missed out on a name.  I have found it as White Wash or Colour Wash and I saw a Tutorial by Sandi MacIver here and it was shown to her by Amy Koenders who saw a card by Karen Barber who found it on Pinterest.  It is a fun easy technique to do with Kraft card and the finished colouring is so soft and pretty, one of my new favourite techniques. I used Elegant Eggplant, Summer Starfruit and Baja Breeze for my colours.  I did add extra layers of colour to highlight the flowers, so they had more depth.

  1. Beautiful card, Susan. Your colour palette & coloured blooms are just divine!!! :)

  2. I've been wanting to give this technique a go (just need some extra hours in the day). Your card is truly inspirational. What a work of art.

  3. I fell in love with this technique also when I tried it. So much fun to see the flowers emerge. Great card!
