Welcome to another week for the CCEE Stampers Challenge. This is Vicky's last week of Challenges and it has been great I have learnt new techniques and revisited old ones, I hope that you have too.
Today's Challenge CCEE1505 in Bleached out Images. Vicky has included a linked tutorial which explains this technique very well.
My tip for this technique is to make sure that you use a fresh bottle of bleach, even a bottle that you have had for awhile will loose it's effectiveness. Make sure you test your card to make sure that you are happy with the bleached colours.
I started with my main image Hero Arts Large flower background and stamped it with black distressed ink and clear embossed it. Then using a paint brush apply the bleach to the area I wanted, the results are instant. I have used chocolate card and I love the beautiful yellow tones which I then added shading with copic pens. I also added the green copics for the leaves. A bit of ribbon and some layers and the card is done.
