Bleached cards

Hello. The challenge this week on my card group was card bleaching. I have made 4 cards trying different CS and techniques. I did find that the thinner CS worked better than the Bazill CS. The final card I coloued with copics from this tutorial on splitcoaststampers..  The copics I used were no good as they do not blend on CS. I should have used prisma pencils..

I love the look of the bleached stamping Loz, especially the peacock! I have never tried the technique, although I've seen it done quite a few times and love how it looks. I know you said the copic colouring didn't turn out too well, but I think it looks fabulous. I love the combination of the bright colours and the lovely black embossed image. Great job!
Cheers,
Beccy

Delightful, I love these cards will go and look at the tutorial and give it a try. Do you belong to face book? I have been looking for u there but not success. The year has started badly, family squabbles and them I fell and cracked a rib, and this is jolly painful, so feeling very sorry for myself. You keep well and crafting so nicely. xxx
