BLEACHED BEAUTIFUL BORDERS


I think the bleaching technique is so wonderful. The bleach turns each color of cardstock a different color, and it makes a nice surprise for me every time I use it. For this card I embossed my Beautiful Borders image on Baha Breeze cardstock with a Chocolate Chip craft pad and clear embossing powder. Then I filled my aquapainter with bleach and "painted" the embossed image. When the Baja Breeze cardstock was bleached, it turned a nice vanilla color. I added a little Baja Breeze cardstock behind the bleached image for a little border. I stamped the Bella Toille background stamp with Chocolate Chip ink on my Chocolate Chip cardstock and then stamped my sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink onto my Baja Breeze cardstock. I then layered it all up and put the card together!
