Friday Mashup

I've been a little bit MIA lately, sorry for not responding to your comments, I will try to get it done this weekend.  I've scheduled all my posts for this week well ahead of time.

It's getting close to the end of my term on the design team here at the Friday Mashup.  Just a few more to go.  Lisa brings us this week's challenge.  It is a solemn one.  I don't really have any patriotic stamps so went with the colour combo.


So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project that's "Patriotic or for Remembrance".
  2. Or Make a project with the colors " Whisper White, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade & daffodil Delight."
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Remembrance or Patriotic project using the colors above."
  4. Donate your card to a Wounded Solider or that Special Service Member in your Life!
* If you would like to Donate a Card to a Wounded Service Member you can send your cards to Holly. The Red Cross at the Walter Reed National Medical Center will accept the cards and distribute them to Wounded Service Members throughout the hospital. Please send your cards to Holly Endress P.O. Box 18 Arnold, MD 21012 no later then May 31st. She will be hand delivering them to the Red Cross.


 I stamped the SU Stipple Rose onto Night of Navy and embossed it in black.  I then spent a few days giving it the bleach treatment!, intrestingly though after bleaching out the roses and leaves, when I tried to colour them, the colour kept bleaching out.  LOL I ended up with this lovely mottled colour, I liked it so much I thought you might too.  I have deliberately left the sentiment off this one, I think it would work for a thank you or a sympathy card.

Check out the gorgeous projects from the design team.  I hope you're inspired to create and also send a card or two for donation.

Cheers,

    1. Hi Jules, thanks for your comment, yes I was so surprised that the colour kept disappearing out of the petals! But yes it did actually turn out to be one of those happy accidents that I have quite often in my crafting.

    1. HI Kim, yes one of my favourites too, it lends itself beautifully to bleaching and watercolouring, not necessarily together though! Thanks for stopping in to leave your comment.

    1. Thanks Lisa, the yellow component had me stumped for a while, not one I would have added to the mix on my own! Glad you challenged me to mix it up a bit.

    1. Hi Holly, it took simply days to add layers of bleach to get the navy out of the card! I wanted it as light as possible so that the red and yellow would show. Worth the effort.

      Thanks for your lovely comments.
