White Washed Magnolia card in Rococo Rose

White Washed Magnolia card in Rococo Rose

This card was so fun to make. I was really intimidated by the white wash look until I realized exactly what I was doing.

I started first with a piece of Rococo Rose cardstock measuring 4″ x 5.25″. I stamped the large magnolia from Good Morning Magnolia stamp set first in versa mark and then in matching rococo rose class ink and covered it in clear embossing powder. I then heat embossed the magnolia.

Once it was cool, which only takes seconds, I got out my craft white reinker and my aqua painter. I dropped a few drops of reinker onto a clear block and with my wet aqua painter I painted or “white washed” my magnolia. I covered the whole flower, leaves and all.

After I knew it was completely dry I went back in with sponge daubers and mossy meadow ink and colored softly the leaves. A little went a long way.

I mounted the rococo rose to a whisper white mat, which measured just a hair bigger, with snail adhesive. I then mounted it to the front of my rococo rose card base measuring 5.5′ x 4.25″ in the hamburger fold. I added some Whisper White Sequins and a sentiment from the Here’s a card stamp set.

Simple, yet stunning! I loved making this card.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you’ve been inspired to try the white wash method. I hope to see you again soon!
