Come Sail Away With Me! Card 4

Hi!  I'm here today to share with you Card #4 from my Sail Away class last week.  This card uses the bleaching technique, which is very simple!!  Just fill one of your Aquapainters with straight bleach and "paint" the areas you would like bleached out!!!  Sometimes you get different colors when bleaching different colors of cardstock.  Give it a try!!  On this card shown below, I stamped the sail boat image in Night of Navy CRAFT ink, and embossed with Clear Embossing Powder.  Embossing helps "contain" the bleach, so it doesn't bleed outside of your image.  This is another one of those cards that looks better in person!

Stamps: Sail Away, Occasional Quotes (hostess Level 3)
Ink: Night of Navy CRAFT and CLASSIC
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Marina Mist
Accessories: Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Big Shot, Scallop Edge Punch, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Night of Navy Narrow Taffeta Ribbon, Clear Embossing Powder, Aquapainter, Dimensionals

So are you ready to give the bleaching technique a try???

Have a great Tuesday!!
