Technique Tuesday

Well I just had a ton of fun tonight at my Technique Tuesday class. I enjoy spending time with my stampin' sisters. I know it sounds corny, but they bring me so much happiness.
Tonight's technique was using bleach. We made two cards featuring stamping with bleach, and two cards featuring coloring with bleach. When working with bleach, you might want to open the windows, and be aware that the effect bleach will give your card stock also works on your favorite shirt ;)
To stamp with bleach, create a "stamp pad" with folded paper towels saturated with bleach. "Ink" your stamp with bleach and stamp the image onto card stock. It takes a minute for the bleach to pull the color out; you can use a heat tool to speed up the process.
Before coloring with bleach, it is a good idea to emboss your image. This helps you stay-in-the-lines better. You can use an AquaPainter filled with bleach or an old Blender Pen dipped in bleach to "color" in the image. Just be sure to designate these for bleach only.
Another cool technique is to use a spray bottle to mist bleach onto card stock. Each color of card stock will bleach differently, so have fun experimenting with different colors.

Pin It!
