La Blanche Butterfly Stamp, Distress Inks and that bleach again!

Hi, thanks for dropping by my blog today.

Please look on the post below this one for the ' Show us your Twinchies' Challenge.

This card, made with distress inks and a lovely La Blanche Butterfly Stamp, is my DT Sample for a brand new Challenge Blog starting today, here, on the Ladybug Crafts Blog.
ANYTHING GOES is the theme. You could win a £15 voucher to spend on the Lady Bug Crafts web site!

Sam, who owns Ladybug Crafts where I purchased this stamp from, has a wide selection of crafting items at good prices and great customer service!
Pop over and have a look here, Lady Bug Crafts .

After stamping the Butterfly with Brilliance black ink onto the Distress ink back ground square, I used a very old paint brush and 'painted' parts of it with bleach. I'm pleased with the effect and it's now a favourite technique!

Thank you for looking. Have a good weekend. Please give the new Challenge Blog some support if you can  :)  The £15 voucher to spend is a good prize!
Many thanks.
