Bleach Technique Christmas Card

Use Terri's bleach technique to highlight a Christmas stamp on a colored background. This is a great way to create a special homemade Christmas card.


Bleach Christmas Card


Materials:

  • household bleach
  • Paint brush
  • Stamps: Candles by Stampotique
  • Water
  • Twinkling H20’s: Fuzzy Peach, Bashful Blue, Key Lime, Egyptian Gold, Cranberry, Icy Iris, and Golden Opal
  • Black embossing Powder: Fine black by Stewart Superior
  • Embossing Ink: The Embosser by Stewart Superior
  • MasquePen
  • Embossing Gun (heat Gun)
     

HINT: Test your black cardstock with the bleach. All cardstock bleach out just a little differently. Some turn a brown color some will bleach out almost white… I like the white look the best for the project.
 

Instructions:

  1. Stamp “Candles” using embossing ink and black embossing powder onto Black cardstock and heat emboss.
     
  2. If any of your images you want to remain black – add MasquePen to these parts of your image. I masked the dots on one of the candles and the diamond on another. Make sure you allow your MasquePen to dry (it turns clear).
     
  3. Using a Paint brush and your bleach – bleach all of image you want to paint in later. Bleach will take a few minute to dry before doing the next step. If cardstock is not bleach out as much as you need try adding a second coat of bleach.
     
  4. Now the fun part. Color in your image using Twinkling H20’s. To use Twinkling H20’s just add water to your brush or paint jar and start color in the lines. The embossing ink help keep your color in the lines.
     
  5. After you have colored in your image. Remove MasquePen to revile the black cardstock again. Matt onto Gold cardstock and add to card base. This technique works great on a scrapbook page too.
     
  6. If you can find a mini image of the same stamp you used on your card. Stamp smaller image onto your envelop and color with Twinkling H20’s to complete your card.
