Whitewashing Technique & a Pop Up Card too

Pop Up Easter Card

Whitewashing Technique

When I think of whitewashing, I can't help but think of Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer.

Whitewashing TechniqueTom resumed his whitewashing, and answered carelessly: "Well, maybe it is, and maybe it ain't.  All I know, is it suits Tom Sawyer."

“Oh come, now, you don’t mean to let on that you LIKE it?”

The brush continued to move.

“Like it? Well, I don’t see why I oughtn’t to like it. Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?” That put the thing in a new light. Ben stopped nibbling his apple.

Tom swept his brush daintily back and forth—stepped back to note the effect—added a touch
here and there—criticized the effect again—Ben watching every move and getting more
and more interested, more and more absorbed. Presently he said: “Say, Tom, let ME whitewash a little.” 

Tom considered, was about to consent; but he altered his mind:

“No—no—I reckon it wouldn’t hardly do, Ben. You see, Aunt Polly’s awful particular about
this fence—right here on the street, you know—but if it was the back fence I wouldn’t
mind and SHE wouldn’t. Yes, she’s awful particular about this fence; it’s got to be done
very careful; I reckon there ain’t one boy in a thousand, maybe two thousand, that can do
it the way it’s got to be done.”

“No—is that so? Oh come now—lemme just try. Only just a little—I’d let YOU, if you was
me, Tom.”

I hope that after you see today's Whitewashing Tutorial you will want to try whitewashing too. But the Tutorial doesn't stop there.  I'll also show you how to make a Pop Up Card.


 Pop Up Easter Card Tutorial



Easter Pop Up Card

The pop up is a fun way to picture the empty tomb for Easter. The verse is actually from the Remembering Your Birthday stamp set, but it also works perfectly for my Easter card.

Which will you try next?  Whitewashing or a Pop Up?
