The Paper Players Challenge #117 - Colours from Jaydee - Triple Time Bleach!

This week at The Paper Players, Jaydee has these beautiful, rich colours to challenge us with:-

I decided to try my hand at two techniques I have not tried before - Triple Time Stamping (a la Dawn Olchefske) & stamping with bleach:-

I also used two new stamp sets - Everything Eleanor & More Merry Messages. I quite like how this turned out, even though I smell like I've been at the pool, lol!

Beautiful colour layering Helen, This looks amazing! I love that the bleaching results in the same tone on all of them. xxx

Amy White said...

Wow that bleaching tecnhique looks to effective on those dark colours! I need to have a go at bleaching soon so this has given me some ideas! Great idea to combine it with the triple time technique.

Nance Leedy said...

What a beautiful combination of techniques, Helen! I like how the triple stamping looks with each layer a different color and you chose the perfect stamp for bleaching. Lovely bow too...all 'round a fabulous card!

Jaydee said...

Helen, crisp, clean and stunning. The bleaching works beautifully with the scroll and the technique of stamping the same image on three layers is gorgeous. LOVE IT. So glad you enjoyed my color challenge and thank you for rocking it!

LeAnne said...

WOW, this is fabulous! I still have yet to try that triple time stamping....what a wonderful way to use it. Bleaching....never had luck with that either!! You are brave to do both!

Ann Schach said...

Yowza, Helen! This is such a great card. I love this flourish for triple time stamping. It makes a lovely Christmas card!

Lynne Armstrong said...

Another very clever, FABULOUS card Helen :) These two techniques work really well together (not that I'll be trying them lol) and the colours are gorgeous together.
Hugs xx

Christine Blain said...

Wow - that was brave of you, combining TWO new techniques (the bleach one sometimes has 'unexpected' results!). You have made a lovely card, Helen; very regal and elegant, for Christmas.

Have seen this clever technique ... but never in different colours! You are such a star! You made a tricky colour combo look easy! Hugs xxx

Shauna Cundick said...

Love it! This card is gorgeous. What a fun idea to use the triple time technique with different colored layers!

Stephanie said...

What a beautiful card! I love that flourish because it adds such an elegant touch, and using it with bleach acts as a unifying force with the different card stock colors. Great job!
