Sweet STamps Bleached Challenge

Today our challenge at Sweet Stamps blog is to create a card/project using the bleach technique. Some techniques can be found HERE. This is an awesome challenge, we want to see what you come up with for this theme. Can't wait to see what you all can come up with, but be sure to use a Sweet Stamps stamp....

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree. Visit the design team blog and you will see what everyone on the Design team has done.

Here is my creation:

 I made 2 cards using this technique.  At first I wasn't too thrilled with they way my images were coming out, but after playing around with different cardstock, I finally got the result that I liked.  They are not perfect, but I am happy with them.  I airbrushed my backgrounds using copics and an airbrush system. 

Here is a close up of my images:

I used 2 of the new butterfly stamps from the new Fanciful Butterflies Set S600.  I then spritzed some of the Copic colorless blender onto my stamps and they stamped the image on the airbrushed background. 

Here is a picture of the individual cards:

 I added some lace and ribbon to each card and a few pearls in the corners.  The bows have a brad in the center of each.

 Be sure to visit Sweet Stamps blog and see what the rest of the team has created for you.   And please join in on the fun!

Very pretty- love the idea of using the Copic blending solution on a Copic inked background. The lace is a perfect touch- so soft and pretty- and feminine too!
