MIM #76 Double-time Bleach Stamping

This was a fun Monday Make.
We were to choose the stamp of our choice and instead of a stamppad, use a "bleach" pad.
Then use the stamp again, this time with the ink pad of our choice.
Not having done this technique before, I wasn't sure of the outcome.
Aqua mist is not my first try. Other colors produced different result, but I liked the 'cloudy' effect of this one.
A few die cuts from on the farm, some edgers for the hills and a picket fence, all well and good. But it wasn't until the central sunny dies with the red sentiment were added that it came together.
All sewn on a terracotta clay card base.
Tiny chickie is first bleached, then stamped, and then glittered.
I can tell by the entries of others that tried this, a good time was had by all.
Anyone else have a workroom with a lingering bleach smell?

  1. Your card is gorgeous. I need to watch Nichole's video to learn about this new-to-me technique. Hate the smell of bleach though so will wait for a warm day when I can open the windows. : )
