Bleach technique

Using bleach to stamp your images gives an interesting result. Make your own bleach "stamp pad" by putting a piece of felt in a container and adding just enough bleach to soak the felt. Stampin' Up! card stock is fabulous in so many ways. When I used bleach on the Only Orange card stock, the bleached area becomes Summer Sun! This card is made using Summer Sun, Only Orange and (who would have thought) Riding Hood Red. The red gave the card more depth and made such a difference when I added that layer. I added a felt flower from Felt Fusion (pg 177) and two clear rhinestone brads from the Pretties Kit (pg 175) The flower and the "thank you" are adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals. Stamp sets used are Doodle This (pg 88) and Wow Flowers (pg 167).
Another example of the card stock changing colors is Perfect Plum bleaches to Pale Plum.
Give the bleach technique a try. It is fun to see what you come up with!
Have a great day! Thanks for looking! :)
