Ink . Stamp . Share Blog Hop July Showcase

Welcome to my corner of the World

Once again  I am thrilled to be taking part  in the Ink . Stamp . Share blog hop.  We are a group of Stampin’ Up!®️Demonstrators from around the globe here to bring you inspiration through creativity!

You will have either arrived from Sue’s post or starting here ~ either way WELCOME . We do not have a theme, but each of the talented artisans showcase what they are working on at this time each month. There will be techniques, fancy folds, 3D, new products and ideas – a veritable treasure chest for you to draw on every month.

So this month I have been playing with the Bleach Painting Technique, where I have taken a heat embossed image then painted inside the lines with bleach!

Bleaching Flirty Flamingo Card

Base Card: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Pear Pizzazz Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Basic White Card ~ run thru Cut and Emboss Machine with the Quatrefoil Tile Embossing Folder

Layer 2: 5 x 2 Flirty Flamingo Card ~ heat embossed in silver then painted with bleach.
Ink Color: Versamark

You need to choose a stamp that has some open spaces such as the flower I have used from the Cottage Rose Stamp Set, with the coordinating Cottage Flowers Dies which is what I used to cut out the 4th flower and the pretty and delicate open leaves.

I used the smallest of the Water Painters and ordinary household bleach, taking care not to let it drip onto my card otherwise I will have a ‘bleached blob’ where I didn’t want it!! My final bit of bling are the Iridescent Pearl Basic Jewels.

I tested a whole bunch of different card colors with the bleach to see which would give me the biggest contrast, here are a few of them.

Gorgeous Grape card, heat embossed with gold, which gives a ‘Balmy Blue’ when bleached – so I layered it onto Balmy Blue card to highlight the bleached sections.
