Colour Throwdown # 40




Colour Throwdown is an awesome blog that features several ladies who are very talented and host colour challenges on a weekly basis. This is the card I made using the colours for this week.

I put some bleach on a paper towel and placed the stamp on the paper towel. I then stamped the image directly on the Sage Shadow cardstock. I waited for the bleach to dry. I then coloured the image with a cotton swab and pastels. It is a very fun and easy technique. My greeting is in French as my mother only speaks French :)

Recipe: Stamp by SU! Upsy Daisy (111710) , Fetes Diverses

Papers: Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip and Sage Shadow.

Ink: Chocolate Chip.

Accessories: Bleach, Pop Dots, 1/4 " grosgrain ribbon Sage Shadow (111369), Scallop Edge Punch (112091), Stampin' Pastels (105542).

Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!
