It’s my pleasure to host the Splitcoast Inspiration Challenge (IC896) this week and I chose Running with Sisters & their Pinterest Board. THIS was my inspiration. I loved the flowers & bright orange color.
For my mini slimline card, I die cut the panel & sponged on the apricot & nectar inks for my background, only going about 3/4 of the way up. Then I stamped a bunch of the 3 sizes of daisies onto copy paper and die cut them all to use as masks. I had already decided to bleach the petals but I needed the masks to arrange where to stamp, then mask the ones that needed it.
After stamping the daises w/ Versafine Clair ink (I used this because Memento just doesn’t stand up to the bleach very well), I used a synthetic paint brush to bleach the petals. FYI..the paint bristles need to be synthetic because bleach will totally destroy natural bristles, so go ahead & use a cheap synthetic one. Depending on the ink color, bleach will usually not take the paper back to white. Since I used a red-orange, after bleaching, I got an off white. I also stamped 3 more daisies onto white & die cut them. These 3 are popped up w/ fun foam.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
