Bleach or Tilex?

This card features a bleaching technique. First I stamped and embossed the image, then I used my Aquapainter to bleach out areas of the design. I didn't have any bleach so I used Tilex. I didn't even dilute the Tilex.  I just squirt it straight into the painter's resevoir. I like using an Aquapainter for this technique as it doesn't smell, nor do I worry about it spilling and bleaching anything out. After I bleached the images I added watercolor pencils and blended the colors with more bleach. For added umph I used the white Signo gel pen to create highlights. As always, all supplies are from SU!

Blossoms & Basics Chipboard

Sorry to be gone for so long, but with graduations, work, and all the construction going on at home it has been tricky getting to my blog. I am back and have some great cards to share. This summery card was a part of last Friday's class. I combined the Blossoms and Basics chipboard with Pick a Petal stamp set. I cased the color combo from a card I saw online. All supplies are from SU! I finished the card with glitter and a button with brad poked through the holes.

Crisp and Clean Criss Cross Card

One of my Technique Time! cards will feature the Criss Cross card layout. I am going to change up the dimensions and make it perfect for presenting gift cards. With as many graduations and weddings this June, this gift card holder pattern will come in handy.

All supplies are from SU! Julie B. stamped this gorgeous sample--thanks :0)
