Use a Spray at BBB.



Good morning and welcome to today's Challenge at Back to Basics and Beyond   

Thank you to everyone who has been joining in the challenges , this fortnight we would like to see you make a card using a spray ink, bleach,mica etc. I used  Distress inks for my background, then sprayed with bleach, the colour didn't lift as much as I expected, but my colours were very pale. A Tim Hotz die from Sizzix completed the card.


We would love you to join in, pop over to the challenge site and see the other Design Team makes , look forward to seeing you there.
