Blast From the Past Challenge - Bleaching

It has been fun seeing all your cards for my challenges on StampTV.  This week my Blast From the Past Challenge is to use Bleach for your stamped image.  For directions on how to do this you need to watch Gina K's video "Bleach as an Ink Pad".   All the information about my challenge can be found here. 

My sample card above was made using two Gina K stamp sets.  The seahorse is from the "Eclectic Summer" stamp kit and the greeting is from Nina Brackett's "Bug Me Anytime"  set.

The seahorse was bleached on brilliant blue card stock.  The bleach changed the color to green.  Pretty cool huh!    The design was layered with green cs and another piece of brilliant blue that was punched with a Martha Stewart border punch.  Two lines were scored using my ScorPal.  Small pieces of green and blue grosgrain ribbon were tied onto a paper clip for the top corner embellishment.  Brilliant blue grosgrain ribbon was tied through a buckle on the bottom.  The verse was stamped and cut out with a circle Nestie and sponged before taking it out of the die.

Have you ever used bleach for stamping?   It is so fun to find out what color will appear when stamping with bleach.  I hope you will go over to StampTV and join in on my challenge this week.  Remember if you submit a card, you will be eligible to win any Gina K Designs stamp set valued up to $24.95.  Check out the details under my challenge here.

Oh for fun. I've forgot about so many techniques since the style has become color with copics and layer the heck out of it. LOL
Maybe a back to the basics is in order. TFS
