Butterfly Fish and the Water Droplet Stamps by Ryn ..... plus some bleach!

Hey... some news! ... I'm back from the most super holiday on the Isle of Islay. A stunning, beautiful place. We enjoyed lots of sunshine.... always a bonus in the Scottish Highlands! We had gales as well but we won't go there!

More news... even better! Ryn, who designs the most amazing stamps, has invited me to be part of her design team.
I'm really thrilled as I adore her stamps and will join Shirley who has been designing for Ryn for a while now and has super blog here.
Both the cards I am blogging today were made using Ryn's stamps. The Butterfly Fish and Water Droplets.

Four squares of card 2" x 2" covered in Distress inks and glued onto some white linen card stock. Both images were stamped with archival black ink and then I 'highlighted' some areas of the fish with bleach. Each colour ink reacts in a different way with the bleach so you can get some stunning results. Use an old paint brush through.. not your best sable!

I made a mask of the Butterfly Fish so I could stamp over the top with the Water Droplets stamp.

Job done ......
It's good to be home ...... shame about the washing!
See you soon.. many thanks for looking today X
