The CCEE Stampers Play with Bleach
Vicky has been the hostess for the CCEE Stampers Challenge for the month of January. For her last challenge this month she asked us to use the 'bleach technique'. I have done this technique before and loved the results, so this was one technique challenge I did not dread......however, I should have known that things can still go wrong.
I heat embossed my image and started 'painting' the bleach on my petal areas. I had chosen Pumpkin Pie as my cardstock as I had wonderful results in the past. However, after applying bleach a few times and letting it dry or heat drying it, the bleached area is not very different from the original color. I think my bleach may be old. We rarely use bleach in our house, so it is probably several years old. So when you see that my color difference is very small, please understand the problem.
However, I still like the effect and the technique, so thanks to Vicky for getting me out of my comfort zone once again.
Now be sure to go and see the fabulous results achieved by the rest of this wonderful DT at the CCEE Blog.
