We have a fun technique for our theme at Less is More this week - faux bleach! I had a look online for some info about what is involved and Jennifer Maguire has made some great cards using this technique. Basically it involves stamping with water on distress inks to lift the colour and create a bleach effect. This works well with both outline and solid stamps.
Here are some examples that I came up with when I gave the technique a go:
I genererously applied distress inks to the card in blues and purples and then spritzed the beautiful chrysanthemum from Uniko with water before stamping. I love the white outline it gives against the rich colours. The sentiment is a die cut from Penny Black.
The same technique but I used a solid fern stamp from Hero Arts and a fab sentiment from Stamplorations (one of our June sponsors).
For my last card I did actually use bleach to lift the colour out of the flowers as I was intrigued to see how effective it was. I like the effect it gives. The flowers are from Stamplorations and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.
I hope you like the faux bleaching technique and enjoy having a play with it this week! The rest of the DT have more fab cards for you to enjoy over at the Less is More blog.
See you again soon,
