and what issue of the magazine it is in.
~ we are a stamping magazine after all.
My choice this time is the Bleach Blocking technique
which was shown to us in the July issue by Hels Sheridan.
Just make sure you use a clean blending tool pad to spray the water onto so that it does come out onto your background.
This has fast become one of my favourite techniques to use.
It is simple, yet effective. It adds so much depth to a card without having to be too clever!
There was no plan to this really, but I started with green…only
because I haven’t made a green card for ages.
Then the image (one of my earliest stamps from Crafty Individuals) seemed to fit the mood of the colours.
Still no plan.
And that is when my mind (or the card?) took me on a bit of a trip.
I couldn’t help but think of all the bad things going on around the world at the moment and how it is really impacting on the children.
So from that came the words and the hearts…with some grounding.
Strange how sometimes, if you let it, the card can take you on unexpected journeys…and you end up in places quite unexpected.
(The world is still a positive place)
