With simple household bleach I then bleached the images - be careful when working with bleach, you should only do this in well-ventilated rooms, and don't you get anything onto your skin or into your eyes! Nevertheless, the effect of bleach is kind of magic!
Then I colored the bleached images with markers and added accents with a white gelly pen. Finally, I stamped the words "Hi" and "Happy Mail". I glued the main image onto the background, then everything onto black cardstock and onto a white card.
Here's a close-up of the finished card:
It's kind of a cheer-up card, I think.
I hope I could make your Monday a bit happier with this, and perhaps you got inspired to play with bleach and white accents, too!
Did you know that there are 12 new colors of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks? I just love the Distress Oxides because they are so easy to blend, have wonderful colors and achieve just amazing effects when you stamp into them with
water. So I am just over the moon because recently there were launched
12 new colors of the Distress Oxides. I got them two days ago and
couldn't resist using them immediately. So I created this card with my
new Distress Oxide inks and some beautiful stamps by Krumspring!
I die-cut some leaves out of leftovers from my Oxide-inked cardstock and glued them onto the panel, stamped the sentiment onto a strip of black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder and added a dot of blue Ranger Enamel Accents. I mounted the whole panel onto a black card. That makes the colors pop out even more.
Hope you like the result! And yay, Tou-can do it! ;-)
Today it's my first turn on the Cards und More blog, and I hope you like what I prepared for you!
My vacation is over, but I'm still in maritime mood, so I used the Under the Sea set by Jane's Doodles for my card today. I wanted the sand and the rocks to look more realistic, so I colored my modeling paste with Ranger Distress inks and some water.
I prepared a panel for the sand and one for the rock with the colored modeling paste and die-cut the ocean ground and tore the rocks. Then I prepared the background panel with blue Ranger Distress inks and spritzed it with some water to create bubbles. I stamped and colored the fish, crab and shell and stamped the sentiments on some leftovers from my background panel. Then I created a slider for my crab to hide behind the rock and fixed the sentiment strip on the backside of the slider element so that you can pull it out to the left and the crab appears. I decorated my card with all the fish and other elements - finished!
Here you can see some details of the sand and rock structure created with the colored modeling paste:
Don't you just love the colorful and fun characters?
