Easy Bleach Technique Card
I'm having a hard time saying goodbye to Baja Breeze (newly retired color), so I just had to do one more design for my June Stamp Camps. This layout was inspired by Ling's Design Studio. I'd done the bleach technique at a couple other stamping events I've attended, but never at my own stamp camps until now. I learned a lot. I used one of the clamshell cases from SU and folded up a paper towel inside, then poured a small amount of bleach onto the paper towel. I discovered that you need to do this right before anyone stamps, otherwise, the paper towel will dissolve and the stamped images won't turn out right. Just be sure to allow time for the stamped image to dry before assembling the card.
My card recipe is Baja Breeze and Whisper White cardstock, Betsy's Blossom and Label Love stamp sets, Baja Breeze seam binding, Smoky Slate ink, and the new Artisan Punch. To me this card has a beachy feel. Enjoy!!!
