Fast & Fabulous Flowers!

Fast_and_fab_BleachThis is one of my very favorite stamp sets – and it's FREE with a $300 (or more) workshop.  If you bump it up just a little to $350, you can also take advantage of the extra $25 in hostess benefits – and that's on top of all the free goodies you already get!

For this card, I stamped the flowers in versamark on Always Artichoke card stock, then embossed with black powder and bleached out the flowers.  This was the second project I did.  The first one was for technique class, and I used bleach with a paintbrush.  I tried a bleach pen with this one – and it bleached out more yellow than white.  So, even though I used pinks to color the flowers, they turned out more tangerine than pink.  I like them, though – and they look great with my new favorite color combination – Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz, and Always Artichoke.  

Just remember that when you're using bleach, different card stock and different types of bleach will produce different results. 

Here are the supplies.  That very light strip behind the stamped image is Pear Pizzazz designer paper.  It looks a little bit white in the photo.
