Bright and breezy!

Hello all :)  Hope everyone Stateside had a great Memorial Day - it was pretty hot here in NJ but I'm not complaining! 
Just popping in with a card that I made earlier when I was having fun with Distress Stains and bleach.  The current challenge at Stampotique is to think BRIGHT so I decided to make my own background by splashing some Distress Stains onto some watercolour paper.  I then flicked some bleach over this and also stamped with bleach using a freebie stamp I picked up from CraftStamper magazine (a UK publication) -  I applied the bleach to the stamp using a paintbrush.  The stamped image is Shopping Shoes by Janet Klein and I coloured it with Copics before fussy cutting it and pasting it on to the backing paper - the sentiment is computer generated.



I would also like to enter this into the following challenges -



Thanks for popping in :)

Love the card, Dawn--it's the most cheerful I've seen in quite a while! I tried using the bleach technique, but being near it hurts my eyes too much. You did a great job with this! :^)
Hugs,
Penny

Bright and fun background with a seriously cute chickie.

I love the smell of bleach, so I'll have to try this technique. I also love Craft Stamper, but it's sooooo expensive here in the states.

Oh what a gorgeous background you got with those techniques Dawn. Bright and fun and just right for that fun little bird. Hugs!
