BLOGGER TEMPLATES AND TWITTER BACKGROUNDS

mixed media monday

This fairy ATC's was created a while ago and to achieve this look I used a plain white ATC card covering all of it using just 1 ink pad, some bubble wrap printing on the background and a mixture of household bleach and water, the bleaching technique changes the ink giving different shades of the same colour to the end result. I am in control to a certain degree but once the stamp is inked and applied there is always a surprise when the stamp is removed. I love this technique.
I am entering this for the Mixed Media Monday over HERE

This is gorgeous! There is something about the monochromatic colour scheme that allows the image to shine on its own which is so refreshing. Beautiful work.
