Simply Fabulous

Dear Ones~
Well, it's raining - yay!!! Hope it rains for a week and washes all the snow away. Not raining hard enough though. This morning it was sunny - go figure!!

Today's card is for the MIUM Challenge over at StampTV. The challenge is color blocking. Hope this qualifies, there are blocks of color, so I guess it's okay.

Here's my card:
This image was so much fun to do. With Versamark I stamped the grapes from the GKD duo set called Better With Age on the green card stock, and heat embossed it with black powder. Then I brushed bleach on the image and it came out that nice golden yellow color. I used my Copics to add the tones of color. It was very interesting, because as I colored, the bleach would lighten the ink. I had to go over it several times. I love how the image has just a hint of each hue, and even though I only used one purple ink, the bleach created different shades. Oh, and I also love those buttons cut with the Papertrey Ink Button Stax Die Set. They are paper, so mailing them will be a breeze.

Here are the supplies I used:
Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Black Onyx Card Stock
Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Fresh Asparagus Card Stock
Core'dinations Card Stock from the Tim Holtz Nostalgic     Collection
Gina K Designs Better With Age Duo Stamp Set
Gina K Designs Fanciful Tags Stamp Set
Papertrey Ink Button Stax Die Set
Darice Embossing Folder
Gold Mirror Card Stock and Gold Thread from my Stash

That's it for me. Thanks for stopping by - and think spring my friends!!


  1. You're so clever! Love how your leaves came out with the bleach! VERY pretty! Looks like color-blocking to me, you can use ink or paper, right? I love that texture and the entire color palette! That grape stamp is super cool as you can color it any color and it always looks beautiful, like here! :)

  2. This is lovely, Judy! That is a great stamp, and I love it embossed in black. Love the colors from the bleach....nicely done!

  3. I get so excited to see what my friends make- I'm tickled! Now I want to try this! Thankeeee! It's more than gorgeous!

  4. I love your card. It is so beautiful with all those panels of exquisite colors. Cool flowers and love how you placed the panels at an angle. And, you colored the grapes beautifully using bleach. I have yet to use my grapes image. Shame on me!

  5. Beautiful Judy. What a great idea to use bleach on the leaves...oh, you clever girl ;) I love the colors, the blocking, the stamp, your coloring....ok, I'll just say it, I love EVERYTHING about it

  6. Wonderful creation! Love how the bleach changed the colors of your grapes. Really neat technique!

  7. Ok, I made a comment over at STV, but did not realize that you used bleach!! You stinker, another beautiful alluring, superb, creation from you. And I see that you have added another card. I need to scroll up for comment on that one.
