DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge 105 Regarding Dahlias

It's Thursday again and time for another DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge.  This week we have a color challenge; Bermuda Bay, Basic Black and Tangerine Tango.  Of course with these colors and the time of year we are in, you would automatically think Halloween.  I decided to come up with something a little different, and let me tell you, it was challenge.

Here is what I came up with:

I stamped the Regarding Dahlias image onto Bermuda Bay card stock using VersaMark.  I then embossed with our black embossing powder.  I then took a small amount of bleach and dipped our aqua painters into the bleach and bleached the solid portion of the flower.  Once it was bleached, I used my heat gun on low and dried the bleach.  The paper ended up warping a little, so I placed a couple acrylic blocks on the image and let it set overnight.  By this morning it was nice and flat.  You can't really tell, but at the last minute I decided to jazz it up a little and added some Dazzling Diamonds.

Here is a listing of the products that I used.  If you would like to order any of the items, simply click on the product and you'll be taken to my online store.
