Bleaching

We all had a great time at the show - the kids loved the puppet show, lawnmower races & of course the motorbike stuntman, while I had fun checking out the pavillions. Stupidly I forgot my camera, so no pictures :-(


These are my latest efforts for the ATC swap I am involved with & I am really pleased with how they turned out. The technique this month was to use bleach - I was rather nervous about this as whenever I use bleach in the laundry it's a disaster, however I am happy to say that stamping with bleach super easy. I filled one of my aquapainters with bleach & then applied it to the back of the stamp, then stamped! The bleach will take the colour out of the cardstock & each different colour cardstock will give you a different result. I have stamped the horse onto Basic Gray & it changed the cardstock colour to one very close to River Rock. I have also run the bleach filled aquapainter around the edges of the basic gray cardstock. I will be running a bleach technique class in the future, so if you are interested in learning how to do this, keep an eye out for the dates.
