Technique Thursday…White on white

Morning all Lisa B here,

Hasn’t it been lovely to see the sunshine back again, it makes me feel so much happier.

Mind you I have been so busy getting ready for my Paper Craft Event on Saturday 19th July that I nearly forgot  to have time to play  and show you something new!!

My last workshop was based around IndigoBlu stamps and I currently have a free IndigoBlu give-away on my blog:, there is also a lot of inspiration with IndigoBlu stamps over the next month and we will be demonstrating IndigoBlu products at my Event Day….

So here is what I have had a play around with……

Start off with a kraft tag and using the White GeeSso Good either paint or brayer the tag so that it is totally covered and then leave to dry…..

Next using a small amount of Townhouse Teal Paint on a craft mat, roll a small brayer in to the paint coating the brayer. Then with a flicking action roll over the white tag going in different directions until it is three quarters covered but you can still see some white paint so that it looks distressed and then leave to dry…..

Next take a small amount of Pantry White Paint on to your craft mat and roller out with a clean brayer. Choose a background stamp, I used  the Honeycomb Background .

Don’t attach it to an acrylic block but just use the corner in your hand and place it in to the white paint on the mat……

Then repeatedly stamp it over your background until you are happy with it and allow to dry…..

Then take another kraft tag and stamp the Large Poinsettia (sorry favourite stamp at the moment) twice on the tag coming off the edge using a clear emboss pad or Versamark and then heat emboss with white powder…….

Then using the Pantry White Paint and a small brush paint in the poinsettia’s removing any paint that sits on top  of the embossing with a baby wipe……

When they are dry cut them both out, leave one whole and then cut the other up so that you create a double and a single bud……

Place them on top of your tag to get your positioning and then remove the bottom one and stick the two top ones in place……

Using a black fine liner draw in some flowers stems and draw around the head of the flowers…….

Attach the bottom flower over the top of the stems to the bottom and draw around it…….

Lastly add some doodling dots and squiggle around the top of the tag, matt on to black card to make it pop and add a ribbon…..

  1. WOW Lisa…how do you think of all these things? What a great tag…love the poinsettia, it looks like vellum when painted and I love the idea of going round them with a pen……very clever. You sure are talented, thanks for sharing it.
