Distress Inks and Bleach Stamping

Two more cards with the inky/bleach technique.
The top card is made with Adirondack inkpad inked over the card then stamped on top with bleach and dye inks. Charms were bought at a craft show from Mei Flower.

Inky Cards

Thought I'd have a change in style this week! The backgrounds are made using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads. I used a heat proof mat and dabbed it with various colours of the inks then spritzed with water. Next I put my background card onto the inks and squidged them around. The flower stamp (Stampendous) in the top card was inked with Distress Inks and stamped. The bottom image was 'inked' with bleach and stamped. I love the bleached effects. More similar pics tomorrow. The top card had blobs of water thrown onto it too.

Summer Exam Congrats

This is a card I made for my niece to congratulate her on her A Level results today. I also thought it was a card that fitted the theme for Cute Card Thursday's Summer challenge this week. What could be more summery than exam results!?
