Faux Bleaching Technique

Here's a fun technique. Sounds a lot like the "Ghosting Technique" that I will be posting in a few days. You can compare them then.

Stamp your image on glossy card stock using the Versa Mark pad. Using the sponge and the colors of ink pads you like, smudge the colors in over the embossed area. Once you have the colors the way you want them place your card stock between a couple of pieces of copier paper and iron it. You will be "melting" off the embossed area. You now have a faux bleached surface.

I like the effect this technique gives. Plus you can add whatever colors you'd like. See, now I tend to lean more towards the "Ghosting Technique" because bleaching doesn't give you that opportunity of adding colors on top of the image. Hmmm. I'm going to have to check into that one a bit more. Or maybe I'll post the "Ghosting Technique" and let you all decide!!!

Either way it's still a fun and interesting technique.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
