"Bleaching" Technique




This weekend, I tried a "bleaching" technique in card-making - it's bleaching out the color in designated spots on your card stock. On the green Easter card; the details on the large egg are bleached. Also just stamped an image using bleach and a rubber stamp - then cleaned the stamp REALLY WELL! All it takes is an aqua-painter, bleach, and an embossed image (I used black) - I completed several "bleached" project. Inspiration came from watching the video tutorials of Gina K from "Stamp TV" - Have you seen this website or "webworld"? WOW! Learned A LOT! Check it out if you're a crafter - you will be glad that you did! (Please excuse my photo taking - it is very POOR - sorry!)

You can also take some stamp images and put bleach on a paper towel. DON'T DROWN it, just enough to get it good and wet. NOT a DETAILED STAMP. But one with less detail. And you can stamp that image in bleach. Another one. I embossed an image of a wedding dress, then I used bleach inside of the embossed image. IF I can find this image, I will send you my card! It is so cool! Way to go! Be creative!
