Welcome to a fun Gina K. Designs Design Team hop! Today we are showing techniques of all kinds as featured on Stamp TV. We hope you enjoy hopping through the variety of techniques and are inspired to try something new!
I chose to use the bleach technique. It has been awhile since I pulled out the bleach and used it in my crafting. To make a bleach "stamp pad" use a plate and a folded up paper towel. Pour a little bleach on the paper towel and let it absorb, then use as you would use an ink pad.
First thing I did was to stamp the image on every single color of Gina K Designs Pure Luxury colored cardstock that I own to see how the bleach would react to the properties of the cardstock. It can differ paper batch to paper batch and age of bleach, so your experiment may be different than mine.
Most of them bleached out wonderfully with the exception of lavender, lilac and bubblegum pink.
I chose to go with the Chocolate Brown bleached cardstock. The bleach created a golden orange color for the image. After stamping I let it sit a little while to be certain it was dry and the bleach odor had dissipated a bit and then I followed up with a little bit of accent coloring using Prismacolor colored pencils.
