Technique Twist Challenge 6: Bleach Stamping

Happy September 1!  Time for our next Technique Twist Challenge, Stamping with Bleach!

This is such a fun technique and you can get such great effects depending on the color cardstock you use.

  • Create your own stamp pad with bleach, but putting several sheets of paper towels in a plastic container.  I folded several sheets of towels and used a plastic storage container (the square ones work great and are really cheap!)  Then, pour bleach into the container so you had a wet, but not soggy, paper towel.
  • Open the windows!  Make sure have ventilation!!
  • Choose a color (or two or three) of cardstock, darker colors work best!  Use the bleach papertowel as your stamp pad and stamp away.
  • You can stamp in versamark first if you are concerned about your stamps.  I did not do that, and immediately rinsed my stamps in cold water.
  • After you stamp, as it dries, you will see colors emerge.
  • For my twisted up version, I stamped the dictionary stamp first in early espresso on crumb cake, before I stamped in bleach.
Check out all the other design team samples...they are faboo as always!!
