I wanted to try some more techniques with bleach, so I tried out this one I found online, I embossed the flowers first with Stampin Stuff Boss Gloss embossing ink. I then used red and black embossing powder respectively. Next, I outlined and hi-lighted the internal part of the flowers with bleach, using my fantastix coloring tool by Tsukineko. I cut out my flowers and glued them to cardstock and used bella rose paper from SU. The stamp is Eastern Blooms from SU. I think it would have looked better if without the shiny gloss, maybe I will try them in Matte next time. Thanks a bunch for stopping by.
I am trying to come up with some scrapbook pages for some friends of mine that like to scrapbook, but arent too sure about the stamping thing yet, so, I used the From the Kitchen of stamp set and came up with this: I used the stamp to add my journaling which reads:
1 C Trust
1 TBsp Patience
2 pinches of forgiveness
16 ounces of communication
a dash of insecurity
Combine and simmer for years to come. Add laughter to taste and always serve with a smile
