Bleach it up!

Hello! I've been wanting to try this technique for a while as I've seen a few cards made this way and they looked lovely! I applied my bleach directly to my stamp and then on to the card. Here I've used rose red, going gray and regal rose. The stamp is the stem from Soft Summer coloured with rose red and always artichoke. I was a bit concerned that the bleach smell would linger for a bit but it went away very quickly!
The bleach has been used again for this one with the rose red and always artichoke. The ribbon slider and frame are from the hodgepodge hardware box. The background has been stamped with the paisley stamp. Thanks so much for looking and hope you have a great week! xx

These two look amazing Karen - I have always fancied trying this technique too. You made such a great choice of colours on them as well.

Have a great day and thanks for sharing :D
