No. 1 - Unscripted Sketches #106 and Blog Candy

It took me a while to figure out what I was going to do with the sketch  with Unscripted Sketches here
and then I thought of a technique I hadn't used for a while- bleaching and then re-adding color. I hope no one minds but I put the sketch on its side.

Stamp: Sail Away, Grunge Rock
Inks: Black Stazon, Soft Suede, Markers (Basic Gray, Real Red)
Papers: Soft Suede, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree Designer Paper, Marina Mist
Accessories: Square Lattice embossing folder, Texturz Plate (background), Eyelets, Twine, 3/4 X 15/16" punch, bleach, dimensionals

The image was stamped with Black Stazon on Marina Mist card stock.  Using a small paint brush I applied ordinary household bleach to the sails only.  When the paper was dry, I applied some basic gray  using a marker and Aqua Painter for a shading effect.

Here is a close up view of the twine and sailor's knot.  You also have a better view of the bleaching effect on the sails.
