It's challenge time with my friends over on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week Vicky Gould our challenge hostess for January brings us her final challenge for the month.
Vicky has challenges us this week to a technique challenge .... Bleached Out Images, you can find a tutorial on this technique here.
It has been a while since I have played with bleach to either bleach out the image or create fun backgrounds. For best results you need to use fresh bleach, so I had to go and buy a new bottle of bleach as I don't normally use it.
For my card this week I have created an accordion card using the new Rectangle Accordion Card designed by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Crafts Designs. I die cut the smaller rectangles from Kraft Card, stamped the cats onto the panels and then used the bleach to remove the kraft color from the card. I then colored the image using copics. I have left the cats belly uncolored so you can see what color this particular card looks like when bleached. I used the fishtail banner from the Lorna Labels Pop Up Card for the sentiments.
Here is my card closed when it is ready to be placed in an envelope.
