Bleached Tiger


I'm thrilled with the way this card turned out. I was able to combine three challenges into one in this card, that in it's self is always exciting it doesn't happen often though.


The layout of the card is from Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #31 (as you can tell cupcakes are not a requirement of the sketch). I left the oval saying off from my card because it wasn't looking right, I couldn't decide if I liked it with it or without it, so I left it off.
This weeks challenge at Stamps, scraps, n more is to use bleach on your creation. This is such a fun and easy technique. I love the look. The Tigers face is bleached. The tutorial on how to do this can be found here.
The Challenge this week over at Sunday Scrappin was to use an embellishment or something that you have your stash for awhile that has never been opened/used. I received a RAK (random act of kindness) last Christmas from an online friend of black embossing powder so I used that I my tiger to emboss him. I tried heat embossing once a long time ago but it didn't work out but come to find out I used the wrong ink pad so I think I will be investing in more embossing powder colors but no how does this mean my cuttlebug is being put to rest.
STAMP: TAC Tiger Face
PAPER: From Stash (sorry the company info was already used)
INK: VersaMark
OTHER: ribbon, heat gun, midnight black embossing powder
TECHNIQUE: bleached out images
