I made three cards that kind of have that white washed feeling. A couple are actually white washed. I stamped the image on the background then knocked parts of it back with Versamagic White. I have also whitewashed the edges of the card base. I love the effect.
I have used mostly Hero Arts stamps. See what you think???

The cream background at the base of the bird card is Shantung silk, attached to the card with the ATG gun. This worked really well. I love the texture, and of course the luster of the silk. I will definitely use this again.
Just love crinkled, dyed, rayon ribbon.
