Playing with Bleach

July 19, 2019

I saw a gorgeous card posted by Susan Legits using bleach on the gorgeous large flower from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set.  Susan’s cards were gorgeous and I decided to have a play with the technique.  I stamped the flower onto Bermuda Bay card using Versamark ink, sprinkled the image with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set it.  I found that I had a Blender Pen which was labeled “bleach” and so I put some bleach in an empty embellishment holder and painted bleach onto the image.  At first I didn’t think it was working, however, with a little patience and re-applying bleach several times, I started to see some difference.  I started by applying the bleach over the complete image and then only added it in places so that I could start to see some dimension in the flower’s colour.  You do need to wait until the bleach dries if you are going to do multiple applications but it is a fun project to have on your work table to come back to between other projects.  I cut the flower out using the co-ordinating  Magnolia Memory Die and attached it to a Gold Foil-Edged card using dimensionals.  I stamped “happy birthday” from the Magnolia Blooms stamp set (this one is in the Experience Creativity catalogue) onto the lower right hand corner of the card using Versamark ink.  I sprinkled the greeting with Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.

To decorate the inside of the card, I stamped the border image from the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set using Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder and Heat set.

A simple card but I love how the flower turned out.  This is one project that I will be trying in different colours.

Bye for now,
