Totally Techniques – Bleaching

Welcome to the July 2020 edition of the Totally Techniques Blog Hop! I’m Lynsay Mahon, from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Each month we feature a chosen technique and each member shares their take on it. It’s a great way to see amazing creativity from around the world!

This month, our chosen technique was “bleaching.” I haven’t done this one in ages, so I was excited to pull out my old aqua painter and get to work!

For my project, I opted to use bleach as an ink substitute. I filled my aqua painter for of bleach and “coloured” the rubber stamp with it. It’s important to note that you must clean your stamp immediately and I’d also recommend avoiding photopolymer and only use rubber stamps.

Once “inked” with the bleach, I stamped it onto the Rich Razzleberry cardstock. The bleach reacts with the cardstock to leach out the colour and leave the look of a painted leaf!

It creates an effect like nothing I’ve seen before with ink!

I love the earthy vibe and the unique background of this project.
