Whitewash Technique

Good morning! Today I am sharing how to get a beautiful whitewashed look with just a subtle hint of color in this technique video "Whitewash".  Isn't that divine on this wild prairie rose?  This technique is so gorgeous on all my stately flowers!  No markers today, just a white and some colored pads.  I *know* you have colored pads, but you can use your colored pencils for adding color, too.
 

Please enjoy!

Supplies used: Stately Flowers 7
Gina K. White, Black Onyx, Bubblegum Pink, Grass Green, and Versamark Watermark ink pads
Gina Pure Luxury Black Onyx and Kraft cardstock
White embossing powder and heat gun
Adhesive pearls, small corner rounder punch, scissors and foam square for cut butterfly

Melanie, what a lovely basic yet sharp crisp pastel on kraft card suitable for most occasions. Thank you for all the video detals. I will watch this again as a funeral card is needed.
