Here is my card –



My favorite color combo is Bright colors with the Primary colors being a BIG love of mine!!!

I did the Bleaching technique for the top blue panel and used the following SU! colors – YoYo Yellow, Ballet Blue, and Real Red!

Used an SU! set called “Smile” – another favorite of mine!!

The bleaching technique – the way I did it – in a small, flat, square plastic container that I could put the lid on – I put in there a square of thick felt and poured bleach onto and covering the felt square!! This became my inkpad – I then stamped with a spatter background stamp onto the blue paper!!!

Well, that is it for me for today and I can’t promise how soon I will be back but I will see you then!!!

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!

    Nice to see you posting and creating. This is a wonderful card and a great example of a true Taunya card–love the whimsical and childish stamps and the fantastic color scheme. I have never tried stamping with bleach–sounds quite dangerous, but you make it all look worthwhile.

    What a fun, colourful, and happy card! Perfect for a celebration! The little smiley face is adorable! Glad you’re back to crafting and blogging! I have been taking a break from crafting/blogging myself, off and on, since my mojo has taken a trip somewhere and hasn’t returned! I hope my mojo comes back soon!

    Everything about this card is infused with your ‘signature’ style, Taunya: sweet images, bright colours and a sense of whimsy that is purely your own! That smiley face is infectious; I’m sitting here wearing a big grin of my own! I, too, am sending prayers and hugs that your soul-searching has seen you arrive at a ‘destination’ that will make you happy. You’ve had a topsy-turvy last few months, so feeling the need to ‘question’ sure makes sense! Hopefully, you’ll continue to create and to blog; hopefully, doing so will bring you joy in the same way it does to us: in immense quantities!
