Pretty in Pink ...

Hi Everybody,

This card is another of the ones created with the Water Bleaching Technique  
I added a video on the process last week in different colours and they are really lovely cards and oh so easy to do. Click the link to refresh your memory 

For this one I used Fired Brick, Picked Raspberry and Worn Lipstick and blended them well together.

Then with Wilted Violet I painted in the bleached butterflies again

I used clean water to splatter the front to the card and blotted it off with kitchen towel.

This card has used a Spellbinders stamp and Mermaid Lagoon, Blue Print Sketch, and Broken China.

Then the flowers painted back with Twisted Citron

Both are lovely vibrant cards and well worth adding the technique to your repertoire of card making skills

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

    1. Distress inks are a water reactive dye ink but Distress Oxides are a dye and pigment ink fusion that still react with water but give a lovely chalky finish once they are dry and blend so much easier. Cxx

  13. Hi Christina,
    Both cards are beautiful. Before to watch your video last week, I thought (like June) that you have to use some bleach. At the end of your video I understood that it is about the bleach effect.I have to try this technique. Thank you for sharing.Your videos are very usefull.
