No worries......





I saw this great sentiment and it seemed to work beautifully with this card. Remember a few weeks ago when Sweet Stamps had the bleach challenge?  


This was my first attempt at the bleaching- and when I tried to bleach the purple ink , it turned turquoise..... Well, the blue faded away and so I finished up the card. I painted over the bleached out butterflies with Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust paint.  The butterfly and background images are from Sweet Stamps and the sentiment is from Create with TLC.  I added a seam binding bow using a Copic marker to color it purple.
 I hope you have a wonderful worry free or worry light day!


Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly, this is beautiful! It must have been such a surprise when the bleaching took away the purple. I love the placement of the butterflies and how you colored the seam binding and tied it across the corner, just the right design element to finish off the card!

Well whatever you did, this turned out just gorgeous! Love those butterflies! I have not worked with bleach and since I just look at the stuff and end up with spots on my clothes, I will pass or wear glad rags in the process! Happy Friday!
