Golden Bleach

This has been a great week!  Other than the power outage!  Three more invitations to craft shows before the summer is over and the annual Christmas/Holiday craft sale is reserved already.   Busy?  Yes, but I'm going to try to make Christmas cards for as many challenges as possible for the remainder of the year to prepare for the biggest card giving holiday!  Thanks for joining me again. . . I hope you enjoy today's project, being that it was very new for me!  Who new the Burgundy stock would bleach yellow?  I think it gave it a very rich lustrous feel!


In case you didn't guess, there is a new challenge beginning today at Sentimental Sundays Challenge sponsored by Raindrop Echo Designs and it's "Inky Fingers ~ Try a new technique!  Sounds fun huh?  It never hurts to broaden your horizons so I wanted to try the bleach effect.   I saw a tutorial on Stamp TV and imagined using up some of the old Stampin Up stock I've had for 10 years or longer.  I also used flock on the mittens and hat which I've never used before and instead of coloring with all copic, I dry distressed the boots, and snow suit to test out the shading abilities of dry painting.

On to the details of my newest piece of greeting art. But before I do, there is also a giveaway by the lovely and talented Antoinette I wouldn't want you to miss out on, so be sure and visit her.  Don't forget to hop over to for the new challenge and great inspiration.  I always love to see your projects!

  17. You've put a lot of work into this card and it's beautiful. I love your colouring of the image. The bleach has worked well. You must have just the right card because it isn't always so effective.
    The sugared flowers are lovely too. Kate x
