Without Change, There Would Be No Butterflies.......

.......and what a sad World it would be!

Hello everyone, welcome back.
Barbara here today showing a new card made with the fabulous, brand new stamps from Lynnda at Oak House Studio. I have more to share, so keep checking back over the coming week or so.

 I've started with a piece of white card which has been inked with Spray Inks from the Colour Chemistry range 

I randomly stamped the small butterfly with household bleach then overstamped with a dark red inkpad HERE

The butterflies and lovely sentiment stamps are available HERE

I inked up a small piece of acetate with alcohol ink to colour-match, then cut out 2 butterflies as 'vague, whispy' embellies....I didn't want anything to detract from the lovely butterfly stamp.
 I matted it all onto a piece of craft card and then again onto a brown card base.
No ribbons, pearls or anything else.....don't think they're needed.
What do you think??
Have you ever stamped with bleach??
It would be great if you could leave a comment, to let us know you've visited.
Catch you all soon,
Barbara xx

It's gorgeous and I love the acetate butterflies. I've never used bleach for stamping but will have to have a go now!!

That's lovely and stamping with bleach too!! May be a daft question, but does the bleach not affect the stamp itself? Sorry to ask but don't want to ruin mum's stamps which I use ;-)
Thanks Sarah

lovely card, striking colours, the butterfly stamps are brilliant

Lynnda's stamps are very, very firm, and the bleach does not affect them at sure to have plenty of ventilation though and wash the bleach off asap xx
