Gina K Design Illustrators/Design Team Blog Hop and Challenge for July!

Howdy Ya'll!! This month's challenge from Gina was to use one of the videos from STV showing a technique she has I chose to use the "Bleach as a Stamp Pad" technique. Here are the links:

If you want to watch on STV, CLICK HERE

Or you can watch it right here too!

And now here is my little project I did...I made a bookmark! Cause reading is the my 2nd obsession!! (right behind all things Gina K of course, haha!)

I used Nina's newest set, Hugs and Prayers, to stamp the flowers with bleach. Then I used the other image and stamped over the bleached image with white, did a bit of doodling and then stamped the words in white, the words and sentiment on the bottom are from the new Seeds of Kindness stamp set, and went over them cause they were not bright enough for me, lol. This bookmark clips over the top of the page, it has a magnet inside of it, covered over with the white cardstock. I think I will try to do a tutorial for everybody on this at a later date....but for tonight, on to more eye candy!!

For more projects from the other designers participating in the hop tonight, please check out these links:
