A get well card for my friend Irene who had surgery this week. It's also for the Mixed Media challenge for this week, to bleach or take something out of a coloured image. I'm cheating a bit, as I didn't really colour this image, just used bleach on the background. The poppy image was embossed with yellow ep and then I painted it with acrylic paints. I absolutely love how the brilliant blue paper bleaches out to a turquoise. I started out applying the bleach with a paint brush, but it was too thick, so then I just used a toothbrush. I was inspired by the Pinterest picture seen in the following link. http://pinterest.com/pin/387591111650890104/

Wonderful creation!!! Your bg turned out beautifully!! That is the piece that I was inspired by also. I first tried some bright acrylics, but that wasn't working out for me. I settled with watercolor. Isn't that just the most gorgeous inspiration piece?!!
