Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and the emails sent to C&C, it means a lot to me that you took the time to message me.
Before I bombard you with my samples just a quick reminder to check out the Polka Doodles and Kuretake blogs for for some fabby challenges, comps and inspiration from the design teams. Polka Doodles is De-stress this week, so if you love distressing, inking and vintage then it's the challenge for you.
Below are some more samples using deColourant.
I hand painted this flower and after doing it wished I'd made a better choice of material. I wasn't about to re-do it though so I have to live with it now. I really wanted to show a. that you could paint with it and b. that when you do it over patterned material you still get the pattern showing though like a ghost effect. You can use this to your advantage for some fabulous effects. If you were to put another layer on (after washing the piece first) It will take it down even more.
This first one is shows the flower after it has been heat activated and before it has been washed.
This is it washed and mounted on a piece of board. I've added a butterfly and a moth using deColourant and home made stencils with some dies. I then added some stickles to highlight.
The next two are mixed media canvases
That Special Touch masks, bubble wrap and the peony stamp by Stampendous
Masks, grunge board, acrylic paints, mica spritzers, mica flakes, beadazzles and decolourant with Creative Expressions stamps
I made a couple of extra cards for the show and an extra one that could be sent out if anyone emailed, hence there are two very similar.
Distress stains and Studio 490 stamps
Distress stains, Indigo Blu and Creative Expressions stamps
An apron stamped using deColourant and Clarity Stamps
A denim shirt using deColourant with masks
A silk hankie using deColourant with a mask. This is very fine translucent silk so you get a really subtle effect
A silk scarf stamped with deColourant plus and stencils with deColourant. Again the butterflies are very subtle

deColourant plus painted on jeans
deColourant on jeans using my homemade stencils. I then did some rough back stitching with embroidery threads round the images
A sample quilted piece. I wouldn't normally put these colours and patterns together, but I had so many pieces from domoing I decided to do something with them. It gives you an idea of how you can use bits up if nothing else. Big thanks to Marilyn (my MIL) for sewing the up for me to save me a little bit of time.
Again this is just demo pieces I patchworked into a bag. I used a round piece of sponge and deColourant to make the spots for the back piece.
Next time I will show all my Clarity show samples. Till then enjoy your crafting
