Bleached Elements

June 4, 2011 | 3 comments

I’m having a lovely day today although the weather is not as good today as the beautiful day we had yesterday.  I took my middle 2 girls to the movies this morning and saw X-Men: First Class which we all enjoyed and have then come home to create again.

I’ve gone with another challenge for this card I’m going to share with you. This time it’s a colour challenge from Cards & Things Challenges.

Here are the colours for this week’s challenge #81.

I was a little stuck with what to do with these colours but I pulled out my Elements of Style Stamp set, some embossing supplies and my bleach and had a play.

I’m still unsure on this card but the more I look at it the more it’s growing on me.

I’ve stamped and embossed in clear the flower image from Elements of Style onto the Peach Parfait cardstock and then bleached the image using an Aqua Painter filled with bleach. It’s been ages since I’ve played with bleach but Kirsty Brown wowed us at Convention with it so I thought I’d have a go.

Stamp sets: Elements of Style
Card: Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Very Vanilla
Ink: Versamark, Poppy Parade, Peach Parfait, Crumb Cake
Accessories: Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Clear Embossing Powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, Sponge Dauber, Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Don’t forget to leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Till next time….

    I’m finally getting this comment thing right..LOL
    I really like this colour combo and the way you’ve cut up the image is great.I’ll have to get that stamp set back out again and give it a go.

    Beautiful card Nikki! I haven’t tried the bleaching technique yet. You’ll have to show me how next time we catch up.
