Bleaching & Adding Colour

The last bleach technique that we did in this weeks technique class was adding colour back in after we had bleached it out of a design. This is such a cool technique and awesome for creating lovely effects with a single layer of card stock. The colour you add back in can be from Classic Ink pads, Stampin' write markers, pastels, water colour crayons or water colour pencils - so lots of options! This card was CASEd from Kristy B. who demonstrated it at the 2011 Stampin' Up! convention in May. It works well with any open line stamp image.

Stamps: Elements of Style
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, Soft Suede
Card stock: Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Accessories: Heat tool, clear embossing powder, Aqua painter, SNAIL, stamping sponge, stamp-a-ma-jig
Non SU!: bleach
