Our current challenge at StampNation is Colorwashing and WOWSAS what fun we are having!

6 Dream Team samples and 15 member entries – each and every one of them made my eyes bug out of my head.

I haven’t been able to stop playing with this technique.

The fun is that you never know exactly what you are going to get…each sample is unique and awesome.

When I made this video, I cut the butterfly from masking paper and ended up making TWO cards from one cut.

View the video to see how this was done:

 

Fun, right?  Leave me a comment and let me know what dies you already have in your stash to use this technique on…this card is seriously simple and versatile.  Imagine the possibilities!

    Can you explain about the Blending Tool. I know there are replaceable pads but can you wash and reuse? How many should you buy to begin with?
