Ticket to love

Good morning folks! I recently saw a technique that's been around for ages in use on someone's blog and was finally inspired to try it out myself. (Stamping with bleach.) It's pretty cool because you can achieve lighter colors of the cardstock you're stamping on without using any ink! So, that's what I did for the background on this card...



I've used another Wryn digi, colored with my Copics. I was pretty impressed with the way the tree came out, I thought I would have to use my colored pencils to achieve the rough bark texture, but I didn't. Instead of coloring it in solidly with the darker brown Copics, I used long and short vertical lines to create the texture and I am very pleased with the effect. 



The grass, however, was done with colored pencils, there is just no way I can get those super fine lines I love with Copics. It would be pretty cool to have a fine drawing tip on Copic markers.


That's all for today, thanks for peeking in!
