Can you believe I started this post January 20 – and I'm just getting back to it today (Feb 4)! - But I have alot of completed projects I'll be sharing… so stay tuned!)
In our December Club Class I showed the Bleaching Technique… Anyone who has bleach and stamps can do this unique technique.
Our January Club Swap Theme was.. you've guessed it Bleaching
I learned some interesting things I'ld like to share with you about the Bleaching Technique:
You will get a different 'color' outcomes depending upon the type of beach you use
- There is liquid Bleach and
- Gel Bleach in a pen
both work well, but your results will vary.
Your results will vary depending upon how strong (old) your Bleach
- I started out using Bleach from my basement, and just to see if there would be a difference,
- I purchased a new bottle and
the new bottle was 'stronger' and I liked those results better.
Your results will vary depending upon the medium you pour your bleach on:
Believe it or not, what you pour your bleach on will also determine your results
– I first used a plastic stamping container (cut the top off) with a sponge in it. I soaked the sponge good and then stamped
– The next day, I used paper towels in the sample plastic stamping container, soaking the towels good as well, and then stamping
I received different 'colored' results. I believe the sponge and paper towel mediums mix differently with the bleach, hence the different results you get. BTW…. the bleach ate my sponge while I was working… ha ha ha.. Now I should have taken a photo of that, what was I thinking!?!?!?
Of course once I start something, I seem to have to make charts, or samples… you know more work for myself.. but in the long run, I have a great Sample Key Ring with all of Stampin' Up! Exclusive 48 cardstock colors and what color you get when you stamp in bleach!
The creator of the card below is: Stacy Simin
I love how Stacy's image looks gentle, soft and simplistic. The photo doesn't show the glitter she added to the flower petals which really makes this card sparkle.
Very nice job Stacy!
Stay tuned for more card samples using the Bleach Technique.
Have a great day!
