LOC Bleach It Out

It is a beautiful spring Saturday morning here today - I am working ahead with my Card Design Classes at my LSS, I like to have the samples for the next Class ready to show the ladies and this is one of the cards I have created

I was inspired by this tutorial on SCS and have used the Layers of Color Cottage Rose cling art stamp - gorgeous isn't it!!

I love working with different mediums and trying different techniques - so working with bleach just appeals to me greatly - the rose has been embossed with Black Embossing Powder.

I have popped up the leaves to slip the Seam Binding underneath - I love the way it looks and this has got me thinking - I have some ideas cooking away and will be back to show you at some stage I am sure - you have to love the creative process.

My bow has been tied using the BowEasy - it makes bow making so easy, finishing off with a Kaiser Brad.

The Stampin Up Eyelet Border Punch has been used along the lower edge - and you know I am going to tell you that the edges have all been sponged with Ranger Walnut Stain Distressing Ink.

This card is for the following challenges:
Alota Rubber Stamps - Use Green, Yellow and Orange
