MIM #76: attempt #1

I was intrigued by this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Double Time Bleach Stamping. I'd heard of stamping with bleach before but had never tried it, so I thought I'd give it a go.

I thought my new The Sweet Life set would work well for this technique. Here's my first card that I made:


I used PTI cardstock (rustic white, sweet blush), stamps (the sweet life, Think Big Favourites #7) and dies (pinking border). I stamped first with the bleach, then with hibiscus burst and raspberry fizz. I did the same technique for the leaves, as well, with spring moss ink.

Thanks for looking!

Leigh, you really rocked this technique with your card. Such a pretty card and would work for so many occasions. Off to watch Nichole's video and check out the other cards!

The bleach technique gives a lovely halo effect around the flowers. This is a pretty card.
