Hi I'm Clare, and as you can probably tell by my blog name I love to craft. It is a hobby of mine which I fit in my hectic life whilst working as a teaching assistant in a primary school, looking after my son, daughter and hubby Gary. Not forgetting our two mad springer spaniels, Suzi and Jess.

Stamping with bleach

It's Clare here and I'm here today for my Bee Crafty spot and I have had a go at stamping with bleach. It's a technique I've never tried before but it is one that I am certainly going to do again.

 

For this card I used:

Beautanicals dandelion stamp

Da Vinci script stamp

Wordage live with no excuses stamp large

Liquid pearls

Distress inks

Clear embossing powder

Household thick bleach

 

 

To make this card I masked off part of the card to leave a white area and blended on my distress inks dried marigold, wild honey and barn door. With the da Vinci script stamp I rolled a wad of kitchen roll and put it into an old plastic tub and poured on my bleach. I dabbed the stamp onto the wad and stamped over the blended ink with the mask still in place. I waited for the bleach to react and then stamped on my dandelion in black and again stamped the floating seeds, masking off the main dandelion so that I didn't get a second image. I stamped the sentiment and then added my liquid pearls.

 

 

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I love to hear your comments and thoughts.

 

Happy crafting,
