MIX IT UP CHALLENGE #12

Hello There My Crafty Friends,
I want to let you all know there's a new challenge starting today at...
The theme for this challenge is...
Anything Goes with a Twist - Bleaching

When I first saw the theme for our challenge, I was thinking 
'What the heck is bleaching?" LOL.
So I looked and found a few different ways people use bleach on cards.
Here's one way that I really like, though did my own thing on some of it.
 
...For This Project - Step By Step...
I got the idea for using bleach watching this video:
 Sepia watercolor
Cut a piece of watercolor paper the size I wanted to use.
Put a drop of distress ink inside the of top of the distress ink pad.
Used a watercolor brush with a small amount of ink to brush on the paper.
I found out that it's best to wet the paper first, so did that.
Then continued adding a small amount of the distress ink until done.
I liked the wood look it was getting so fully covered the paper.
After letting that dry really well, I stamped the flower on with black ink.
After letting the stamped ink dry.
 Using a smaller watercolor brush I painted distress ink on the flower for shading.
After letting that dry really well.
Using bleach in a watercolor brush I painted where I wanted lighter areas.
Using a larger watercolor brush I put a few streaks of water below the flower.
Then with the same brush, I flicked water all over the paper.
After letting that dry really well.
Cut a piece of dark brown paper to frame behind the image and taped it on.
Then had my hubby cut a thick piece of chipboard to frame behind the paper.
Used the distressing tool around the edges of the chipboard.
Next used a lighter color brown distress ink around the edges.
Then taped the image onto the chipboard and will probably frame it. :)
...Products Used...
Canson XL Watercolor Paper
Memento Dew Drop Ink Pad 'Tuxedo Black'
We R Memory Keepers Precision Press Stamping Tool
Prima Marketing Distressing Tool 
Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pad 'Vintage Photo'

I like it too and had a lot of fun making it. :)

Used the tape runner on the back of the paper and attached it to the card.
Glued a piece of tulle behind the left side of the ribbon down to the right side of the card. 
Glued the small banner die cut onto a larger one, then glued onto the card.
Rolled the flower die cuts and glued the bottom on. Then used tweezers to curl the petals.
Glued the leaves, then the flowers onto the card. 
Attached two pop-dots on the back of the butterfly die cut and added it to the card.

CUTE AS A BUTTON NEW RELEASE

Hello There Crafty Friends!
I want to share with y'all a card I made for a new release at... 
 
I love tulips and so miss having them. I enjoyed coloring the beautiful...
...For This Card - Step By Step... 
  Yellow cardstock for the card base.
Cut a piece of patterned paper to fit the center of the card.
Taped the paper onto the card.
Glued a piece of lace ribbon onto the left side of the card.
Taped the image onto the card slightly slanted. 
I have to admit I goofed on the frame when I cut the image with the die. I accidentally cut part of the top off of it, ugh. I could have cut the deco part off but wanted it on there. So decided to add ribbon across the top (where I goofed) and go with the blue and yellow theme. :)
So I taped the image onto the card slightly slanted. 
Put scor-tape on the back of the ribbon.
Added the ribbon across the frame, put the ends in back of paper.
Tied a piece of blue ribbon around a piece of yellow ribbon and glued them to the card.
