Bleached Out Image Christmas Card


This is my Christmas card for my family and relatives this year. I'm really rather pleased with it!
I've used Holiday Lineup and after clear embossing the stamped image I have painted bleach in the areas I wanted to white out. It is a great technique to use for the snowmen as they can often be a challenge to colour in. I added some Dazzling Diamonds to give a touch of bling.
The ribbon is from the recent Spring mini catalogue and the background is done using the So Swirly jumbo wheel. I did do others using the Soft Holly wheel which looked very effective too.
Card colours are Baja Breeze, Pacific Point and Riding Hood Red.

  1. This is a beautiful card, Janine. I've never been happy with any of my Holiday Line Up cards, but I think I'll need to try this technique, it's a lovely effect.

    Cheers,

  2. I've just stopped by to look a your blog and your makes which are brilliant and I've loved reading it (incl your incentive trip!) But what a surprize I got when I looked at your profile to find out your a Midwife like my self. I've only just become SU demonstrator in the UK. But I've been a Midwife in the UK since 1982. Co incidentially a colleague of mine came to work as I Midwife in Melbourne 18 months ago (I know you won't know her as Melbourne is a big place lol) Best wishes for 2010 - Lesley x
