Stamping with Bleach

Have you ever tried it? Well, this is one of those things that I just thought was not something I really needed to try! Why try this when we have every color of ink available? Well, then I went and tried it! And it was really cool!

I am sure people have WAY easier ways to do it, but this is how I did it!

I took a paint liner for a paint pan (which I am sure it would have been easier to just use a small bowl, but I was kinda freaked out at the whole "bleach" thing!). In the bottom of the pan I just stacked 3 fold paper towels. Then I just poured some bleach right on till it looked soaked in! I used Aged Ornaments for this card! I just stamped right in and played with it several times to see how the actual "bleaching" would work. It really makes a fun image! Here is my card! I am not sure what I was thinking when I stamped the sentiment! It is just kinda out there but you will get the idea of the whole bleach thing! :)

I used TAC's Olive Cardstock, which by the way is so super yummy! It is so nice and thick! The card base is made from TAC's Brown Cardstock. The layered image on the front is out of Olive as well! I just took some bleach on a paper towel and rubbed it all over the cardstock until I got that faded look. It was fun! I would definitely challenge you to try this one! If you do, leave a comment here with a link so I can see!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!


  1. I love this card! I don't think I realized that the base was brown when I saw it before! So pretty!

  2. Love it! I've used detailed stamps and just wasn't thrilled with the results but this is perfect!! :)

  3. This is awesome! Luvin' the olive and brown with that POP of rasberry ribbon :) And it's been awhile since I've bleached, laundry or otherwise :)

  4. this is a fabulous card, Laurie! love it!!!

  5. This is a really cool technique. I saw it over at stamp tv this week as well. I gotta give it a go! Thanks for the inspiration chick.
