Take It, Make It Challenge: August - DT card

A new Take It Make It Challenge for August has started on the Craft Stamper blog. The theme is to use your favourite technique for an 2014 issue of Craft Stamper. The technique I chose to use was 'The bleach blocking technique' by Hels Sheridan, July issue.

This is my DT card, below. The butterflies and sentiment stamps I used are Butterflies by Hobby Art. The shaped card blank is Elegance from Craftwork Cards

To create the card I started by cutting a panel of smooth white card. I coloured with card with Tumbled Glass and Stormy Sky Distress ink pads. I then added the bleach blocking technique to the coloured panel. To do this I added water to a clear Distressing Tool pad and pressed it down onto the coloured panel. This removed the colour as shown below.

I then stamped the Butterflies with a Tuxedo Black Memento ink pad and coloured them with Copics. I cut out each butterfly. Once the background panel was dry I attached it top the card blank. I stamped the sentiment and black silhouette butterflies before attaching the coloured butterflies. To finish I added Stickles and clear Wink of Stella.
