Take It Make It Challenge over at the Craft Stamper Magazine Blog starts this morning. If you've already had your magazine by subscription you will have had a sneaky peek at the "bleach blocking" technique, if not then the magazine is available from today in all good craft shops and WH Smiths.
I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and make something bright (think I managed that one lol.) So inked up a background of Picked Raspberry and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks, then taking the name literally, got the cleaning spray out! This does work with water, but I wanted a more dramatic look, for my background.
In the end I decided to use the "Uptown Girl " stamp from Stampingbella, coloured with Promarkers and cut out, so most of the background could still be seen.
I had great fun (as you probably guessed) with this technique and I'm sure you will too, please remember to stamp on your project and also to have a direct link back to the project on your blogs, so the DT can check out your creations.
As always we have a fabulous prize up for grabs and the winner will have their card printed in a future copy of the Craft Stamper Magazine.
Good luck and I'll see you over at the blog!

Teehee, love this girl! Great background too!
Love your card!!
Love this technique, you get different results every time :)
Wishing you a lovely weekend xx
I think I like the bleach better than the water effect! Very cute card.
Very bright and I like the bleached blocks, quite dramatic. I haven't done this with blocks only taken the colour from an image so amybe I should give it a go.
This makes me happy and chuckle all at the same time Elizabeth... I need to try this way, great effect! :-)
That's really cool - what a great effect from the bleach. And the quote is perfect with the stamping (don't envy you the cutting of those skinny limbs though!).
A great card, love the background colors.
Such a happy card Elizabeth! You look like you have had so much fun making this, as it should be! Looove it.
I love the drama you've created with this fabulous background Elizabeth. So vibrant and cheerful. Jenny x
Great card. Beautiful background. Have a wonderful day Anneke.
