PaperArtsy Challenge : Mail Art

This week's PaperArtsy challenge is Mail Art, see here.
This week I combined the bleach technique from last week, with a faux postcard for mail art.
I used stamps from ID04, and Fresco Paints (Snowflake, China, London Bus, Yellow Submarine and Granny Smith).

PaprtArtsy Challenge : Bleach (3)

Another Paprtartsy challenge card. This time I loved the piece by Kaz Hall here.
I used HP1009 for the flower, and EEG15 for the background stamps and the sentiment.
Like Kaz i used bleach to make the background a lighter colour, and to highlight the petals.
Very effective!
The paint splatters (and stanping) are all Fresco Paints, in Snowflake, China, Haystack, Professor Plum and Eggplant.

PaperArtsy Challenge : Bleach (2)

Having made the first card by Lesley Ebdon, I made a card inspired by her second card in the post.
The main star is from JOFY03.
The background is Distress Ink Iced Spruce and Adirondak Cloudy Blue with a bit of Distress Broken China.
The fstars are stencilled with Fresco Snowflake to create the faux bleach and the sentiment is from HPXM09.

PaperArtsy Challenge : Bleach Techniques

Over at PaperArtsy the challenge is Bleach Techniques.

This post by Lesey Ebdon caught my eye, and I had a go at her Christmas Card.
The star is from JOFY03.
The background is Distress Tumbled Glass and Adirondak Rust, with the faux bleach being  Snowflake Fresco Paint through a stars stencil.
The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

PaperArtsy Challenge : Colour Mixing (2)

After making my last card, inspired by Hazel Agnew, I decided to try again, trying to achieve a more watercolour look.
First thing I did was to use a page from a book in the background (with a whitewash over), like Hazel did, as this makes a big difference.

Still using just Pumpkin Soup and China Fresco Paints (with a bit of Snowflake and Satin Glaze), I tried again

Fun and interesting to experiment!
