Beautiful bleach!

Di is introducing some new shapes and a new sort of board as part of the Tando Creative range. Carol and I have been putting things through their paces and you can see the results of the first experiments -Distress Ink backgrounds- over on Tando. Yes, I really did use bleach here (and yes, I really did have to go buy bleach just for stamping!) - check out the full details and some pieces from Carol too on the Tando Creative blog.

Stamps (Cornish Heritage Farms):
Ornamental Beauty (Rummage Bin line)

Tree Swallow Silhouette

White coated chipboard arch (Tando Creative)


Tim Holtz Distress ink by Ranger (Shabby Shutters and Peeled Paint)

Stazon by Tsukineko (Timber Brown)



Seed beads

Dangle from old earring
Copic markers (to tint white beads as I didn't have anything the right kind of colours).

Thanks for stopping by today!

Absolutely beautiful Joanne.
I love the way the bleach works with the colours you have used and so clever to bleach out the breast feathers.
