Make It Monday #76 {Bleach Stamping}

Stamping with bleach! 
 It's really cool how it reacts with the different colors of paper.  Before stamping over the bleached area, make sure the bleach is totally dry.  Part of my image was the tiniest bit damp.  It turned the ink a bright shade of purple...hence the ribbon:)


Cardstock: Sweet Blush, Scarlet Jewel
Stamps: Life, Natural Beauties Sentiment
Ink: Autumn Rose, Bleach
Other: Autumn Rose Ribbon

  6. Beautiful colors and love this flower image for the bleaching effect!
    PS: I am constantly adding ribbons as a cover up, but yours just looks perfect there and not a cover up :)

  16. Wow, you got a lot of dimension with the bleached stamping! I don't end up using purple a lot, but you did really well with it!
