Update: I always said Hero Arts should make the codes bigger on their stamps as I have probs reading them........somebody has very kindly pointed out to me that I got it a bit wrong for the above stamp, so I have amended it below and it is K5353.
There's a new challenge at Rosie D's which our teamie Lyn is hosting and has given us the theme of England/St George or just Red and White.
This card is also my entry for this weeks Cupcake challenge which has the theme Red and White.
I confess that the patriotic side of it stumped me a bit and I have gone down the easy route of red and white. I had a new Hero stamp yet to be inked up and as it is a nice shadow stamp thought it would work well with red and some bleaching.
The stamp is Hero Arts K5345 In the Garden which I stamped with versamark and embossed with detail clear onto some red matt cardstock. It's always difficult to be sure how well bleach will take and on this occasion I ended up with a brownish colour, so when it was dry and coloured the beached areas with a white Prismacolor pencil which lightened it enough for what I wanted.
I mounted the piece onto white cardstock and embossed a piece of red Bazzil using the script Cuttlebug folder. The wavy edges is EK Success Dotted Wave punch and some ribbon and pearls added to embellish. A fairly quick and easy card.
