The Artful Stampers Blog Hop Challenge 80

Welcome from Jane's blog

This week is a colour challenge

I had a little idea in my head and I wasn't sure it was going to work but my oh my I am so happy with how it turned out!

I felt like using some bleach on my card as it's been a while since I did anything with it.
(Besides clean the house)

The hearts are actually the Floraly stamp from "I think you're great" I have stamped in versamark on both the Crushed Curry and Rose Red papers and clear embossed.
I then grabbed my aqua painter and painted bleach over the whole sheet making the embossed sections darker and obviously the cardstock inbetween bleached out.
Then it was to my trusty heart punches to punch them out. That's it!!
Love it when something actually works!!
