Splattered Bleach Hydrangea Cards

I must confess I was procrastinating yesterday and tried the Splattered Bleach technique that I read about in the Technique Junkies newsletter. I did my brush a little differently on the second card and like how that one turned out a lot better. However, doing the technique with the bleach I used with the first card could make a interesting snow card by using glitter on the drops instead of crystal lacquer or Dimensional Magic. More experimentation will need to be done using different size brushes and using the brushes in different ways to get my splatters. Of course now I'm wondering how it would turn out using bleach in a mister and spraying it on.

This card here I was surprised at the colors that the background turned out being as I dragged the same distress ink pads over my cardstock as I did in the first card. I decided to add a print and cut butterfly from the library in Studio. I added scrapper floss for the antenna and used stickles on it.

O.K. I need to go back and finish sorting through things in a dresser drawer so I can get rid of the dresser this week. So much to do and so little time to do everything in.

Thank you for stopping by and do come back. Happy May Day! Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again.
