Craft Stamper Reminder - Bleach Blocking
Here's a little reminder for the Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge - Bleach Blocking. Remember, we're not using bleach, just plain old water on a Distress Inked background. I was using my new Tim Holtz mini blender tool for the background and realised that if you load up the sponge, then twizz it onto the card, you get lovely deep circles of colour. Then when you "bleach" the background with a clean wet sponge, you get this fabulous bokeh effect.
I used one of my all-time favourite stamps, My Mother's Dress by Inkadinkado, stamping it onto a spare piece of sponged card. The sentiment is from Winnie & Walter: The Big, The Bold and Fun and The Big, The Bold and Happy. I took a leaf out of teamie Tracy's book and added some doodle doodle doo stitching around the edge of the panel. Matches the scribbly dress image. I covered the dress in Wink of Stella, and added Glossy Accents to the "shine" which you can't really see on the main photo, so here's a close-up:
So get "bleaching" and join in. Here's what you can win:
The winning entry gets published in Craft Stamper Magazine (hold onto your card till the challenge closes!) and gets a guest designer spot on a future challenge.
