Just a quick note tonight - I have been watching the Outlines blog with their new challenges but was disapointed this week because the challenge was to use a stamp from their 'bleach it or not' line of stamps and I don't have any of them.
Well after my DD and I went to the gym I aimed to do some house cleaning but then bumped into a bleach pen on the shelf and off to my craft room I went.....I have used a bleach pen to bleach cardstock before.
Unfortunatly the bleach pen didn't work - maybe it was too old.
I had not done the bleach technique in awhile and I was determined!!! So back to the laundry room I went - for the real bleach this time.
Well even though I didn't have the bleach it or not stamps, I used other Outlines Stamps and the bleach and this card is the result. I used an orange , yellow and 2 different brown papers- the bleach yeilded shades of yellow in all of them. I layered them onto kraft cardstock, edged the edges with walnut stain distress ink and then added the phrase stamp on top.
Lastly I added some flower soft to the centers of the 2 big flowers.

All for tonight - time for the couch and my copics......ahhh bliss....
