Bleaching and Colouring

I made this card for the Mod Squad Challenge - Bleaching with Color. We had to bleach an image and then colour it.

I started with a piece of black cardstock and stamped the solid flower and leaf images with bleach. Once they had dried, I stamped the outline stamps over the bleached areas. I coloured them in with coloured pencils, cut the image out with a stitched die and matted it. 

On a piece of red cardstock, I stamped the butterfly images in VersaMark, heat embossed them with clear embossing powder and foiled them in gold. I attached the focal image and popped up the sentiment with foam squares. Than I adhered it all to a white card base.

Supplies used:
