So Suzy Stamps~ White Washin' with Dragonflies!

Good Morning my crafty friends,I'm here, with some inspiration for

Today, I have a cute lil' card set I made using 
 Suzy told me about with her card here.

I didn't know what it was, but her card is stunning, so off I went to comb thru Pinterest. Lol! 

Here's my take:

You'll need:
Kraft cardstock
White Embossing Powder
Embossing Heat gun
Versamark Ink
White Craft Ink
Waterbrush Pen
Distress & Tombow Markers, or other Alcohol Markers
Dragonfly stamp
Sentiments, Sending a NoteThank You! used here
Embossing Powder for Sentiments
Paper Trimmer

Here's the technique I did:
1. I used my Static Buddy on the Kraft Cards
 (cut to 3 3/4'x5'), prepping for Embossing. 
2. Stamp the Dragonfly onto the Kraft CS, bottom right corner. Using my Misti Tool, I went ahead and stamped all 6 Kraft CS bases at once. 
3.Emboss with White Detail EP and Embossing Heating Gun.
4. Take your White Craft Paint, smoosh some onto your craft mat (this prevents your ink pad from getting water from the waterbrush pen). Using your Waterbrush pen, pick up the white ink and white wash the image  by lightly "coloring" the image with a thin layer of "white color & water". 
5. Allow to dry. Then color using alcohol Markers.

6. Emboss sentiments in top left corner.

7. Layer onto White CS bases cut to 4' x5 1/4'. Then layer this onto your 4 1/4'x 5 1/2' Card base. 
8. Embellish as desired- I kept it fairly simple with MME Enamel Dots here. 

Here's the finished cards:
