You’ve Got This, One Layer Card

One layer cards are hard.  Especially for those of us who love to use layers and dimension on our projects.  I thought though, that it was high time I did a one layer card and I knew I could use the image from You’ve Got This.

Stampin Up You've Got This

Using a whitewash technique.  Both the image and the sentiment are stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with White embossing powder.  Next I used white craft ink and my Aqua Painter to whitewash over the entire image.  This is a great way to put color onto colored card stock.  You can also use bleach but honestly, the bleach was in the basement, and I would have had to have a separate container for it and a separate brush.  It was just to much work.  Crafters can be lazy too.  After the whitewash was dry I used my aqua painter with  Calypso Coral over the entire flower then followed up with new Watermelon Wonder for some shading and some Hello Honey on the center.   The leaves are done first in whitewash, then Cucumber Crush, then Mossy Meadow for shading.  Done and Done.

  1. Lynn thanks for teaching me something new today!! Never knew about the white wash technique before your post. Love the idea of lighter colors on dark cardstock. Beautiful coloring job on your flower.

  2. Simply gorgeous, Lynn! I love this card and wonderful technique! yay!

  3. Lynn, This technique is beautiful, but I am not sure what type of ink you used for the whitewash..what type of ink do mean when you say a “white craft ink” I tried this with a pigment ink and it was not a solid base, it kept coming off with the color…
