CASE'd Poppy

Welcome

I was inspired by a card that Michelle Pearson blogged recently.  So I got the bleach out and had another go at the bleaching technique. 


 I have never really had what I thought was a satisfactory result with this technique, but I was more patient and this time applied the bleach four times and got a far better result.


After I succeeded with black embossing and the bleach, using an image from the Precious Poppies set. I decided to mount it over some old dictionary paper, layering it over a chrome yellow and black card.


The sentiment (from a Crafts Meow retired set) was also black embossed.


Thank you for visiting - any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated.
May your day be blessed.
