Bleach Technique – Happy Ornament Card

Hello everyone!  Today’s share focuses on using regular household bleach to whiten up areas when using a darker cardstock.  Every time you use it you never know the effect it will have.  In the sample below it doesn’t bleach evenly but almost takes on a look like a globe. To me  the lighter parts resemble countries, doesn’t the area under the “HA” and “every” look like Africa? I did go in and add a little Elegant Eggplant to the ribbon and top of the ornament after bleaching.  Then for the final touch, a little Wink of Stella over the whole thing, although it is a little hard to see in the picture. Enjoy!

  • Elegant Eggplant – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
