Hi everyone!Â So I’m always up for a challenge.Â Patricia saw someone’s video who was describing how to use bleach on cardstock to produce a beautiful image and suggested that someone try it using someÂ awesome Paper Temptress cardstock.Â So, I started playing and came up with 3 different examples.
On the first card, I stamped a bleached image on Epic Black Thick ColumnÂ paper and left it as is.Â I matted that on the really cool Ivory FeltweaveÂ and then used the most gorgeous Sparkle Vermillion 92# cover stockÂ for the card itself.Â I love, love, love that paper!Â It glitters and is such a gorgeous tone of red!
On the second card, I stamped a bleached image on Epic Black Thick ColumnÂ paper and then re-stamped the same image using black pigment ink.Â I added clear embossing powder andÂ heated & melted it whichÂ almost forms a wall around the image.Â Â Different shades of Pearl Ex was added using a water barrel brush.Â I matted that piece on 2 pieces of Vellum, gold & Peachy Velvet Stripes which is a vegetable parchment.Â Â When I tore it, the paper kind of separated which had such a neat effect!Â Â The sentiment was heat embossed using gold embossng powder.
And then finally, I used the same technique as the second card, but I also distressed the edges of the Epic Black Thick ColumnÂ cardstock using a paper distressing tool.Â Then, I dipped the edges of the black cardstock in Versamark and then into gold embossing powder and heat to set.Â The piece was matted on a Golden Green Basis cardstock card.Â
So, what do you think?Â Hope you like them!
Until next time,
