I have long been a fan of the bleaching technique and had also decided that I should make more use of my Grateful Bunch set so it was almost inevitable that I would combine the two!
|Dimensionals give a little bit of ..... dimension!|
The various pieces of this card have been sitting on my table for a couple of weeks, waiting for inspiration to strike. In the end, I had to call "time" and do something with them!Product List
|A simply card but I think it's elegantly cheerful!|
I started with line of flowers on the Soft Suede cardstock. It was always my intention to bleach them, so clearly my head was not together when I stamped them with Archival ink instead of heat embossing them in black! They actually came out better than I expected - I was worried that the black ink would completely bleach away.
I coloured those flowers with Calypso Coral ink (the yellow is simply the bleached cardstock). Then I masked the flowers while I added the white heat embossed lace elements.
|The Wink of Stella is so pretty!|
Then I stamped three flowers with Basic Black ink onto Calypso Coral cardstock. I elected to hand cut them rather than use the matching punch because I wanted them to be cut close to the lines. I shaded them with Watermelon Wonder ink.
I layered the bleached floral band onto Calypso Coral cardstock and then onto a Soft Suede card. I added a greeting from Birthday Blossoms (heat embossed in white) and adhered the three flowers - two of them with Dimensionals and the smallest with a glue dot.
Lastly, I added gold Wink of Stella to the centres of the flowers.
Thank you for visiting today.
