Bleach Embossing Technique

Today’s card features an impressive technique I call Bleach Embossing as well as a number of products that are retiring.  I’ve used Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant cardstock as well as the Big on Birthdays stamp set and the oh so cool Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate to create this pretty card.

Look close at the center of the flowers from the Big on Birthdays image.  Did you notice how it’s a lighter shade of purple?  That’s what happens with bleach on cardstock.  I stamped the image in VersaMark and heat embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.  Next I dipped the tip of an empty Aqua Painter into some regular household bleach and painted it within the flower image…and Voila’ I’ve got light purple flowers.  The embossed image helps to hold the bleach inside the lines for a simple yet stunning look.

If you’d like to make this card, you’d better get the supplies ordered before they’re gone for good the end of May (or while supplies last)
