Bleach Stamping Technique For Cards

Bleach Stamping Technique For Cards

Bleach is not just for disinfecting in my house!  Try this cool bleach stamping technique for a cool color changing trick using 12 x 12 smooth Neutral Precision Cardstock pack by American Crafts.

First, emboss an image with embossing powder of your choice. I used white embossing powder on a few colors of paper to make it pop and then chose gold and silver on others for a monochromatic look.

Next, take a small paintbrush, dip lightly into a bowl of bleach, and "paint" the image...and just watch the magic happen! The embossing helps keep the bleach from bleeding. It's amazing to see the color that the paper bleaches to. Darker colors have a more dramatic effect (like Denim and Charcoal) but the lighter colors (Stone) are just as pretty!

    Sorry, Becky…I do not make videos…you may be able to find something on You Tube. But if you follow the details in the blog post, it’s pretty simple and straight forward. Feel free to DM me on Instagram (@katedeignancards) if you have any questions.

    Is there a video? I do better visually 😀

    If you are hesitant about a smell, you could always dilute the bleach, but then I think the results would not be as dramatic. Try the bleach out on a sample…you’ll be so surprised!

    There is no bleach smell…it’s such a small amount that you need to create the color change that it just evaporates. If the card is fully dried, there is no effect on the envelope.
