Tweet Anniversary Wishes

Welcome

In a recent 'round' of swap cards in a small group I belong to, we had to use the bleaching technique.  My partner not only sent a beautiful card, but she also sent some other samples that she had made, but was not particularly happy with, and this was one of them,


I coloured the image, which had been embossed with a sparkly black embossing powder, with my polychromos, keeping to a soft palette.


The sentiment was embossed in silver on a mauve snippet,  trimmed and the corners rounded with a punch, then mounted over a lemon snippet that matched the card the image was layered on.


I wanted to use the soft pink ribbon, but it was so sheer the lemon showed through and made it look apricot, so I layered it over a snippet of  white card , and wound some mauve toned bakers twine around it, including a double heart charm under the bow


A dotted line was doodled in purple ink, and the lemon panel mounted on the mauve base.

WOW! Gorgeous card Maxine. Great work with the bleaching and then adding colour back in. Your birds and flowers are beautiful! I love the colour combination ... so lovely. Great idea to add the white card stock under your pink ribbon - looks amazing layered with the lemon ribbon. Wonderful details with your heat embossed sentiment and those linked hearts. xx

A delightful image and how lovely it must be with sparkly black embossing powder. I have never thought of using that for outlining but it sounds as if it would be just perfect.
Blessings, Neet xx
