Bleeding Tissue - Thanks!
I've not done a lot of the bleeding tissue technique and results have been quite mixed.
However, I don't like to be beaten and seldom throw anything away. Although the card looked a bit splodgey I did like the nice bright colours so set to and had a play.
I've recently got out my old brass stencils after them being hidden away for a long time. I decided it was time to use them again to make a few cards.
After rubbing Black Archival through the design I used some black Distress ink around parts of the edge of the stencil.
It still looked a bit uninteresting so I rubbed green and black inks through sequin waste then added a few sequins for sparkle. I put the button in the centre of the flower then finally I mounted my topper onto black card to make it pop.
This card just evolved as I played and I am pleased with how it finally turned out.
I'd like to link this card to the following blogs:-
