For the past week over on the fabulous PaperArtsy Blog there has been lots of inspiration and wonderful projects for Topic #23 - Bleach techniques which was introduced brilliantly as always by Darcy HERE.
I love the effects you can get using bleach on paper, card, inks, etc., and have tried out various different combinations in the past. I even have a pad which has some sort of product that removes colour that you can use as an 'ink' pad for stamps. In all the attempts I made I have found the results to be extremely varied. With some card and also inks bleach barely works at all and often when it does work it leaves a totally unexpected colour behind. Some of these are lovely and some not so, lol! I also like 'painting' with bleach if I get the right combination of card or ink On this occasion I wanted to use stamps and stencils to remove colour from dye ink backgrounds on matte coated cardstock and I did a few experiments using bleach but found that a faux bleach technique using water was more successful. If you hop over to the PaperArtsy Blog you can see my step by steps on how I created two Christmas cards using mainly Sarah Naumann stamps, sneak peeks of which you can see below.
Thanks for dropping by!
