Hello everyone! I am running WAY behind but wanted to case my sweet friend Angie to honor her as our 138th QFTD. I used one card of Angie's for my layout,found here: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=84051 I also have wanted to try her bleaching technique so I tried combining them. I am not thrilled with the outcome, but such as it is, I'm sharing it anyway. I used this month's release from Our Daily Bread designs, Cardinal Ornament I stamped it on Kraft card stock and then painted with a paint brush. The bleached area yellowed a bit more than I had expected. I did not have the bleach gel Angie used so I used straight bleach, and I'm thinking it might have been a bit different due to that. Anyway... I then colored the image with Prisma Pencils, letting the more heavily bleached areas stay lighter for my highlights. After coloring, I added white with my Signa Gel Pen and then some glitter to the pine needles and cones.... but you can't see that in the photo.
I cut the image with Spellbinders Classic Circles Lg and matted with Lacey Circles. The dp is K&Co. I stamped the sentiment from the same set with VersaFine for the darkest imprint on the dp.
Angie, I hope you enjoyed your reign as queen, and even though I'm late getting to the party, I wanted you to know how much you always inspire me! I hope you enjoyed your time as queen!!!
