Lawnscaping Challenge #44 - New Technique

Hello Crafters!

So happy its the weekend - but as always it will go so fast!  I enjoy my time to be able to craft and the weekend is a good time for me to do DT projects, challenges, or just be crafty in general!!  I wanted to share with you my project for the next Lawnscaping Challenge - Try a New Technique.  For my technique - I've always wanted to try stamping with bleach.  I've seen so many cool projects done with it, and how it gives such a neat look.

To tell you the truth I actually did another card previous to making this one - but I felt this one turned out a bit better overall.  

I first made a "bleach pad" by layering up a piece of paper towel and saturated it with bleach.  I chose the microphone from Stay Tuned from Lawn Fawn and stamped it out first with the bleach.  The image wasn't as solid as I would have liked - but still gave it a neat look.  I, then stamped the image again with Memento Morocco Ink and offset the stamped image a bit.  Then, I stamped my microphone image with black Staz On ink.  I took one of the speech bubbles from A Birdie Told Me, and stamped that above the black microphone.  Above the others, I stamped in the Morocco Ink the music notes from Stay Tuned.  My sentiment also comes from Stay Tuned.  

I wanted to add some texture so I turned to my basket of washi tape - and found this gray diagonal pattern and a thin mustard yellow pattern.  For some embellishments- I added some gems and pearls.  I forgot to say in the beginning - I finally was able to purchase the sampler pack of the Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock, and I love it!!  Like they say - its great for card makers - my card panel is the Circus Peanuts color, and the Licorice Twist is my card base.  

Here is another look - 

As always I enjoy participating in the LSC. It is my favorite Challenge blog :)  I'll meet you back here soon!
