Bleachy Keen

Dear Ones~
Another gorgeous day - how can we be so blessed. And here I am in my craft room instead of outside. Now that's TRUE  addiction!!
Today's card was made for the MIUM Challenge over at StampTV. We were charged with using the bleach technique. Now this is one of my all-time FAVORITE techniques, so it was a no brainer.

Here's my card:
This is a little 4x4 card, love making them! There are two ways to do the bleach technique. One is to use a paintbrush to paint the bleach on the image, the other is to use the bleach as an ink for your stamp. I like doing the inking thing, love the effect. The image I used for this card is one that I wasn't sure would work, because it's pretty detailed. But voile, it did. I even was able to stamp the greeting with the bleach too.

Here are the materials I used:
Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Cranberry Tart Card Stock
Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate Card Stock
Authentique Something for all Seasons Paper Stack
Gina K Designs Love is Friendship Stamp Duo
Fiskars Medallion Punch
Cuttlebug Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder

That's it for me today. I may just have to go sit in the sun for awhile - thanks for stopping by!!


  1. This is really lovely! Great colors....wonderful focal image! I thought this was right up your alley!

  2. Beautiful card Judy!! What's better than the red, black and white combo? I love everything about it.

  3. This is outstanding! Love the beautiful paper, and that image turned out incredibly well. (BTW, I haven't been getting notices of your postings, so I've been absent from comments, but I saw this at GKD & jumped for joy!)

  4. I haven't been getting notices of your postings either. I think every once and awhile, I need to add you to the list again. But this card is amazing, how the bleach showed up on the intricate design. I would not have thought of it.

  5. How about we call it Passion? ;) I love this card, it reminds me of a quilt, do you see that too? The bleach ink pad worked wonderfully on that delicate stamped image--Perfect! It's so packed full of beauty that I would not think it was only a 4x4 card, well done! ( I do get your notices--probably cuz you love me most of all) hahaha
