Good morning!  Today is the last post I’ve made on the Flourishes Newsletter as the June Flourishes Limelight Designer.  Today I covered the Faux Bleach Technique on the Flourishes Newsletter.

For this week’s post, I worked with both the Home Tweet Home and Birds in Vines sets. My first card uses Home Tweet Home.


The image was colored with Tombow Markers and I used the new Spellbinders S4-218 Lattice Borderabilities for the border along the bottom.

To show examples of the Faux Bleach Technique, I used Birds in Vines and airbrushed over the embossed image with Copic Markers.


and the embossing ironed off as a second background:


  • Stamps:  Birds in Vines from Flourishes Stamps
  • Paper:  Prism Tawny Medium and Black; 7 Gypsies Market; Manila Shipping Tags
  • Ink:  Ranger Distress Embossing, Spiced Marmalade, Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint, Black Soot, and Archival Jet Black
  • Accessories:  Copic Markers and Airbrush System; May Arts Ribbon; Tsukineko Sponge Dauber; Ranger Matte Accents, Clear Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder, Ink Blending Tool; Spellbinders Grand 12” Classic Lace Borderabilities and S3-031 Scalloped Tag; Clover Craft Iron; Tim Holtz Tonic Scissors for distressing; Sewing Machine

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love your projects, Sherry! Great suggestion to use cardstock as the sheet over the embossing for ironing. I love your 2nd tag equally as well as the tag on your card front. AS you know I am challenged with this and hopefully I can get my own personal privatge lesson during your CHA visit.

  2. Love your cards. Looking forwards
    to using the lattice dies (they are
    on preorder.)

  3. Oh my beautiful work here, so love the bird in the first, great coloring and that lattice is just perfect with it, on the second card, love the background colors on the tag, and pretty border there too!
    Cool tag too!

  4. I have to say that while I like all of these WONDERFUL works of art, the card with the faux bleach tag is my favorite. I swear, I could use this technique for every card I make. LOVE the look of it!!

  5. Gorgeous cards Sherry (as always!!!)…love them!
