The Flower Challenge May 2019 – Reminder

Hello everyone

It’s reminder time already at The Flower Challenge, and dont forget you can win a stamp set from Altenew, all details are over at The Flower Challenge.

My background combines white heat embossing over distress oxide ink blending and the bleaching technique. To ‘bleach’ I used a paintbrush to add water to areas of the image and after a few seconds I dabbed the water off with a dry cloth. Because distress oxide inks are water reactive you reactivate the colour and dab it away. I love this effect. The heat embossed stamps are from Altenew Golden Garden.

I stamped some florals from Altenew Golden Garden and fussy cut them on to an oval diecut. The sentiment is from So Loved by Simon Says Stamp. Some white nuvo drops finish off the card.

I do hope you will join us with your dry embossed or heat embossed cards.

    I’ve done the bleaching technique with actual bleach but this would be easier and I’m glad you reminded me of it, Rachel. I love the layout of the leaves in the background. I rarely use this set but you’ve given me some great design ideas for it.
