Whitewash Stamping!


We have been instructed to open our Compendium of Curiosities #2 to page 47!  Linda decided this would be a good week to do some "Whitewash Stamping" and I really had a good time with this!  I used stamps from two of Tim's new releases, available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique, who also happens to be this week's fabulous sponsor!   WooHoo!   As always we cannot tell you about the technique, but really get that book if you don't have it in your collection!  Simon Says Stamp and Show has a "No Rules" challenge, so we will be linking this up there as well!
The background pattern is very subtle!
After I did the technique, I stamped the diamond pattern from my new set of artsy stamps into a pattern.  I wish I had taken a picture before I added the rest of the stamps, but it makes for a lovely background.  The Jumbo Tag was stamped and embossed in gold using the same stamp, so you get the idea about what a pretty background this makes!  Love those stamps, really love them!
I added the lavish trim and some gold seed beads for the flower centers.  The metal tag was embossed with gold and colored in with the paint dabber.  Fun all the way around!

Hope you all are enjoying this week and hopefully crafting away.  Thank you for visiting and commenting.

This is gorgeous, Terry! I love the combination of the bright white and the gold, with that gorgeous teal colour. Must try that,

Beautiful tag, love the colours and the white stamping, and especially the diamond background stamp. I have a similar one and hate having to cover it up! I will send off your postcard next week when our post-office opens again after decorating their premises! Valerie

Whoah Terry, loving that background tag!! Can see why you love the stamp so much. You've also managed to get your whitewash stamping much brighter than mine somehow. It really pops with the other stamping. Hugs, Buttons x

The harlequin background is just divine and so rich looking and then the additional stamping with the gorgeous white trim which really sets it off. Love this Terry.

Wow, Terry, if that diamond stamped background isn't gorgeous, I don't know what is! And it is really exceptional in gold. Your whitewash stamping is truly impressive too - those new TH stamps are terrific for it! Your tag is absolutely gorgeous and I can't tell you how much I appreciate the shout out for my boutique and the linking of products. Thanks so much for that!

Hugs,
Linda
