Today I'm sharing a card that was made from
techniques at our retreat. This is a card using Susan's bleach technique.
The retreat was long ago and I'm still trying to get cards made
from things we did and get them posted. This one is long overdue.
She gave us each a little dish with a bit of bleach in it and a cheap
paintbrush that we could just use for bleach. It worked seamlessly.
I might add that it was splashless bleach. A warning though. You still need to
be careful using it and old clothes are suggested. Just in case.
We used our new blending brushes (thank you, Trina) to blend
Distress Oxide ink on cardstock. I dabbed a bit with a baby wipe
because I like the bit of texture it adds.
When the ink was dry (make sure it's dry) we stamped an outline stamp
with Archival ink. Then we set about removing the color from the
inside of the image with a little bleach on our brush, blotting often with a
I love this stamp but can't decide if it's an iris or a lily?
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
