New Technique...

Hi! I am back with a card which I made as part of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Though I have been painting almost everyday, I have managed to do very few complete cards. This is one of them.

I used some red handmade paper as the card base and stamped some butterflies with Versamark ink. Then I heat embossed with black EP. I used some household bleach to 'paint' the flowers with a regular paint brush. The sentiment is from Bo Bunny and stamped on a piece of cream paper.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

30 Day Coloring Challenge:

Addicted to CAS Challenge #65 - Butterfly

Creatalicious Challenges #75 - Butterflies

Looking forward to hearing from you.


PS: Also entering my card into The Card Concept #37 - Butterfly Effect

I would describe my style as Clean & Graphic. I was very inspired by the collage of butterflies and the embossed outlines.

  5. Great job with your bleaching technique and I love your layout! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at Addicted to CAS!

  6. Your butterflies are so beautiful! What a fun technique. Thanks for joining us at The Card Concept!

  7. Lovely! I haven't done bleach coloring in years! I have way too much colored cardstock to last me lifetimes, so might just need to start using it as coloring bases. I've been playing with coloring on cardstock without the bleaching -- either straight or whitewashing it with pigment ink. Completely forgot about bleaching! lol

  8. Great job with the bleach technique- it looks wonderful on the butterflies!! Thanks for playing along with us at The Card Concept :-)

  9. Your card is so lovely and love how you highlighted with bleach. Thank you so much for participating in The 30 Day Coloring Challenge and I hope you will be up for the next one.
