Anyhow over to my challenge for you at The Stampman this fortnight and I have set you a task of using RED, either a little or preferably a lot..
I had a little play around with techniques the other day and used sponges to put fired brick and black soot distress ink onto card then dipped an old toothbrush into bleach then flcked the bristles which is the piece I used at the back. I used parazone which is a tad harsh lol!
The embossed piece I swiped the inkpads direct to the card, they came out much darker then dried t with a heat gun and used the divine swirls cuttlebug folder and the image is from my new set of stamps which was part of my birthday treat off OH and thats Aspects of Design 60 - Classical Instruments. I've stamped and embossed with moonglow midnight ruby then using the blending tool added distress ink from the outside inwards and any bits I went over I bleached out. Its mounted on silver holographic card with some black organza ribbon and sticky gems to finish.
Hope you can come over to the challenge and show me some red!
Here's the backing one I showed other day, ink up your card then dip an old toothbrush in some bleach and pull the bristles back over the card. You may want to tap off excess bleach first or you get big blobs like this (or you may like that!) WATCH YOUR CLOTHES!
