Bleach It Out

The challenge at Stamp TV that Gina K. posted in honor of the new release is to bleach out a design and make a card with it. So I worked on that while the rain was pouring. I chose the stamp images from Gina K. Designs Vine & Butterfly stamp set. I also chose to use some pattern paper from the Gina K. Designs Watercolor Garden pack.


Using some Gina K. Designs Red Velvet card stock and Versamark I stamped the daisy and the butterfly. I added Gina K. Designs fine detail black embossing powder and heat set them. Next I took plain old Clorox bleach and removed the color from the card stock. I used a water brush but I just dipped it in the bleach. After it had dried I then took and added just a smidge of color back in with my Zig Watercolor markers. I die cut the design with Gina K. Designs Small oval die and then layered it onto a black layer die cut with Gina's large oval die. When they were placed together it made a narrow black border around the design. I added a few black gems too. Pretty simple card but I do love the way it looks.

Have a great evening. Your visits and comments sure make me happy.

God bless,
Verna

Beautiful job with the bleach, Verna! I watched the video and remembered that I did this technique many years ago, when I first started stamping, but I haven't tried it since. Nicely done!

You've done this bleaching technique so beautifully, and brilliant idea to add shading with the Zigs. The red bleached wonderfully and I love the hot pops of those summer red & oranges in teh background paper! TFS
