Bleach Technique Class
Tonight is my monthly Techniques Class-I had a request for bleach-I made four cards-The class will make just the one card and an image for their technique book. They will be making the Certainly Celery Card with the Black scallop oval. The image is stamped in basic black craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. The background is stamped with bleach. I don't care much for using bleach personally-one because I always wreck something-my clothes the rug etc.., two because it is unpredictable-as you can see on the two certainly celery cards one bleached white and one a saffron color-the two pieces of paper most likely were from different runs. After the bleach is good and dry you can color on the lightened area-it gives a cool effect it almost looks paper pieced to me. the lightened area look a little glowie (if that's a real word)! All the die cuts and embossing plates I used are Stampin' Up! As well as the images, paper, markers, and accessories!
