CC231 - Praying for You


I created this card for today's Color Challenge: Don't Fade Away. Our color combos were pretty much dictated by our bleaching results... I started with a piece of Old Olive and stamped it with the large Medallion image, and found that the bleached color more closely matched Summer Sunrise than So Saffron. These two colors weren't normally ones I would put together, but I really like how it turned out.


I've never stamped with bleach before (LOL, inevitably something of mine always ends up WHITE that shouldn't be, so I tend to stay far, far away from bleach), but it's definitely a fun technique. I think solid images work better than lined images, which was a little bit of a bummer because I thought In Bloom would look really cool bleached out!


Have a great day!



Stamps - Medallion (SU!), Damask Designs (PTI)
