It's a Little bit French

and a big hello to my latest followers it's lovely to have you along.
I have today been playing with "Elfe & Oiseau" stamp from the brilliant range of stamps that come from Carabelle Studio.
Having been playing a lot with brusho recently (something you might have noticed) I am trying to use some of the papers that I have created whilst practicing what these fabulous little crystals will do.
I have used again some of the brighter colours in the range. I then stamped my image with black versafine and then removed the colour from her skin with bleach. I have added a little bit of colour to her skin using spectrum noir pencils (camera seems to have washed that out a little)
I then made myself a custom bleach inkpad using a plastic tray and some sheets of kitchen roll paper and then added the bleach, the kitchen roll absorbs the bleach so as to not flood the stamp with the bleach. I then dipped my stamp "Spiritual Journey" by Stampotique and stamped it into the colour, I love how the text has appeared through the colour.
Then finally added the sentiment which thanks to google translates to say
"Love is the dream that isn't a dream" or words to that effect!!
Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate your visit.

  5. This is Beautiful and I love the use of the Brushos I have them but it's a bit of a hit an miss thing with me and them at the moment but I will be persevering with them for sure. The tip with the bleach is great because I would have been inclined to use a water brush that I keep for bleach and just taken that across the stamp but think this works better.

  6. Wonderful colored creation. Your blog is very inspiring, I'm your new follower:-) I'm glad if you visit me too.
    Have a nice weekend, hugs Anja

  7. Wonderful Amanda - really wonderful!
