Bleach it!

I was playing around today with the bleaching technique. I need to practice because I'm teaching a technique class in March and that is one technique that I'm going to be demonstrating. I love how my samples turned out. I will give you a bit of advice, use darker paper. I tried with Summer Sun and the results aren't the best! Also, do this in a well ventilated area. I was in my stamp room and I can tell! The fumes were getting potent! I used the Fifth Avenue Florals set, which I have been dying to test out! I used the Urban Garden DSP, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy paper. I think I'm addicted to the Fifth Ave floral set! I love it. Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy.

sweet sunday challenge #3

Once again, Karen has a wonderful sketch. Where do they come up with the ideas? At least, I get to reap the rewards of someone else's creativity! I was trying to kill 2 birds with one stone for this challenge. I needed to come up with some SAB samples so I used my new set, Yummy and the wonderful SAB DSP. Of course, I had to play with some of my new toys from the catty. Today, I was trying out my new embosslet, flower burst. I think I'm addicted. It is sooooo cool! I added a little DD glitter to the flower but I'm not sure if I like it. Maybe it will have to grow on me!
I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!
