…it’s not just for cleaning and laundry…
After working with bleach last week I thought I would play with it just a little more. I created two very different looking cards both using flowers and bleach.
This background was created with ink direct to paper on white CS. Direct to paper is simply rubbing your ink pad across your paper.
This background was created by sponging ink on Barely Banana CS, stamping small brown flower and then bleaching with the daisy.
A few comments about using bleach:
Create your own stamp pad with an old dish and paper towels
When bleaching Card Stock - test first, reaction to bleach varies
Does not work on most designer paper because it’s coated/sealed
Will bleach out dye based inks (I’ve used SU and Ranger Distressed Inks)
I washed my stamps under running water (I did not want to bleach my stamp scrubber)
