bleach stamping card technique

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!

    I too wonder if t here is any bleach smell. Also, what happens to the envelope when the card is mailed. The results are beautiful.
