Masked Dragonflies

This week at Less is More the challenge is Faux Bleach.   Like everyone I know the methods with water, both of which have been very well represented there.   So I thought I'd offer an alternative using masks.

Firstly where the images were to be places I light dusted the card with a pale blue (Lake Mist) and pale green (Willow) this stopped the images from being stark white which if bleaching were involved they would not be.   Then the Crafty Individuals masks placed over and more inks dusted over, Stormy Sky and Peeled Paint.   Then the sentiment Dragonfly Dreams was stamped in Mustard Seed. Seems to have worked quite well.
