Hello and thanks for coming by! I have a couple more cards today made with my Faux Bleaching technique tutorial for Distress Oxide inks. If you haven't already, I would be thrilled if you checked it out.
This card was made with Iced Spruce Distress Oxide ink (it is a greenish grey) on dark grey cardstock from Michael's.
The fern sortof looks like it has been x-rayed. I think it is really pretty with the light blue papers.
The second card is the Tea Dye Distress Oxide on Kraft paper from Michaels. I do really love that color variation. If I had used a touch more water, it would have been more white.
I have been trying to use a lot of patterned paper and even some older brads that are so pretty!
Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Flora and Fauna Sheet, Sentiment Sheet 3, Distress Oxide Inks, My Mind's Eye 6x6 paper pads Follow Your Heart - Be Amazing, The Sweetest Thing - Bluebell, Stella and Rose - Hattie, My Mind's eye brads, Versafine Smokey Grey ink for sentiment, Recollections Cardstock.
I would love to participate in the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwndown - Favorite Embellishment
SimonSaysStamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes!
Here are a few more combos that I tried, but have not made anything with:
This was a different one, Worn Lipstick on orange. When I did Orange Marmalade ink it looked much more bleached on orange cardstock.
The blues, I mentioned yesterday, I did not get great results with. Maybe I need to keep trying. These are stil pretty, just not so bleached looking.
As an aside, I saw a youtube video where they showed how to force branches to leaf and flower early, so I took some cuttings of my lilac bush to give it a try. I will give you an update if it ends up doing anything! (The little faux flowers were some little school project one of the boys did for Mother's day, I never throw stuff like that out!)
