It's Monday... time for another challenge from the Outlines Design Team. There is a series of stamps from Outlines that were created with the bleaching technique in mind -- "Bleach it or Not". The challenge this week was to use one of those stamps and to bleach it or not. You can play along with us and have a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate. Find all the challenge rules on the Outlines Blog.
Check out what everyone else came up with this week: Bev Gerard, Jeanne Streiff, Lisa Silver, Robin Kirkpatrick, Sandy Hulsart and Vicki Garrett.
This was one of the very first Outlines stamps I ever bought. I loved the detail and shading and easy layering possibilities... still do! This image offers a lot of options. I kept it super simple this week, stamping the image in Versafine Black three times on white card stock. No bleaching this time.
I cut the squares out of the second image and popped those up using foam tape. From the third stamped image, I cut out the flowers and added those on the top. I curled them gently before gluing them down. I used a Viva Black Pearl Pen to add a pearl center, while the pearl was still wet, I pushed a Clear Crystal in to the center.
