#281 LIM - faux bleach


I got my distress inks, TH water sprayer and Visible image stamps out for this challenge. I put the ink on the card and then spritzed droplets and using kitchen roll took some of the ink away. I then cut circles out of the card before mounting onto my base card.

I did a second version where I bleached out the centre of the flower and the words and painted them back in another colour with TH inks. I then couldn't throw away the waste, so I used it to frame the image.
I'm entering the Less is More challenge which this week is for faux bleach.

You have used the faux bleaching technique to great effect on these artsy cards! I love the loose, fluid look of the circles on the first card. Thank you for joining us at Less is More this week :)

Both cards are terrific but I'm plumping for the luscious circles as my fave. Xxx
