Sweet Stamps- Bleached

 This week the Sweet Stamps Challenge is Bleached:
  I had fun with this challenge- can you tell?  I got out my Technique Junkies listing and found 12/05 Brayered Bleach- with three variations- so I did method three- background plus.
  I used Shades Ink- In the Pink HERE.  I brayered the ink on over the stamped images and then used bleach in an aqua painter to remove the color. The Butterfly image is HERE.  I did stamping with the Ring Around the Rosey border image found HERE- to add background dimension.  I added a light touch of Fairy Dust Creative Inspirations paint over the top of each of the butterflies to add shimmer- CI paint is HERE.
  The Seam binding just happened to be on my desk left over from a prior project- I do love pink.......  I cannot tell you what colors I used to die this. 
  Happy Birthday-found HERE-  is stamped in black and mounted it to mimic the BG of the card- and I added an outline of sewing to finish off the card.

   I hope you will join in the challenge!  Every entry qualifies you for a chance to win $20 of items from the store at  Sweet Stamps, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! Please note- there is a limit of 10 challenges for each entry.The winner is chosen by so everyone has a chance to win!

Love the idea of the brayered background with the stamped image over top. Love how you used the ring around the rosie stamp for an added background. Love the stitching and the black layer brings every thing together. Awesome!!
