Designer's Choice

It is designer's choice for the challenge at Can You Case It.


For my card I black embossed the floral image from the Awesomely Artistic stamp set on Tip Top Taupe cardstock.  I decided to use the painting with bleach technique on my card and I had no idea what the colour would bleach out to.  It came up a lovely pale yellow that matched perfectly with So Saffron, so my colour scheme was decided, So Saffron, Basic Black and Tip Top Taupe.


  1. Very pretty, how did you do those flowers? did you fussy cut them out after stamping them on yellow card stock or stamp on white and color in the yellow? However you did it very pretty.

  2. Hi Charlene, I stamped the image with Versamark on to the Tip Top Taupe cardstock. I then put black embossing powder on and heat set this. Once cool I painted the image with household bleach. This takes the colour out of the card and leaves the pale yellow colour.

  3. Love the bleach! What a neat technique!! Thanks for joining in over at CYCI!

  4. Your card is lovely. I have not yet used this new stamp but I think you have provided me with some inspiration.
