Bleach blocking

Hello fellow Crafters,

I was intrigued by this technique over at the Craft Stamper Challenge blog. So I thought I give it a go and make a postcard to enter into the June Challenge. And here it is :

I used Distress Inks for the background and a Pan Pastel Sponge and some water to bleach out the little blocks. I recently bought these stamps (Stampingback) which have a Paris theme and I thought it would be nice to use them on this card. I also used some white ink for splattering and I coloured the lady with Copic Markers.  Lastly I drew a line around the card with a black marker. That was it !

Thanks for stopping by ! 

Hope you like it....
