Mark's Finest Stamp Shop - Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge 240 - Bleach




Pat has given us a challenge this week that is a technique new to me.  Emboss on dark paper, let it dry (or dry it with Heat Gun), and color in the image.  On my card, I used the set Snowflakes from Mark's Finest Stamp Shop - but I only bleached out the middle of each snowflake and, rather than using Copics, I used acrylic paint to color the centers.  I actually had to bleach out the centers 3-4 times in order for it to lighten up enough to add color.  So, why not join us and grab a bit of bleach from your laundry room - and give this a try.  Remember, there is always a prize to the weekly winner.  If you have time, please leave some love on the blogs of the Design Team.

Card Recipe:

Stamp:  Snowflakes from Mark's Finest Stamp Shop
Paper:  SU Night of Navy; Silver CS; Bo Bunny DP scrap
Paint:  Winter Blue Acrylic Paint
Accessories:  SB A&B Matting Basic Dies; Ranger EP

Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you at the challenge - later gator!
