So I had this idea to use these Inkylicious stamps and colour the flowers with bleach for the Less is More Lime and Black challenge.
I was first shown this technique many years ago by Kim Reygate when she was demo at Newbury Artstamps. Often I used it on a Sailing boat stamp so its sails were white.
What I didn't reckon on was myself having several senior moments and my hatred of the brayer which eventually ended up back where it came from.
I still working on my technique using brushes instead of a blending tool, yes it is easier on my hands but I keep forgetting to dab.
After several attempts in the bin I was determined to make this card and this one I'm finally half pleased with.
The white isn't as bright as it should be cos you have to use really cheap bleach possibly Sainsbury thick bleach isn't cheap enough or its reactived to the inks.
I coloured the flower centre with a black gel pen and a few black pearls to finish,phew.
