More Bleach Cards

A few weeks ago I posted a couple of bleach cards and also a tutorial on using bleach, here are a few more cards I created or started to create way back then which are now ready to be posted.

The first card started out as a 8cm square card stock which I just folded in half and then used bleach with my solid butterfly image to stamp randomly over the front of the card. I then used the outline stamp which matches this stamp to over stamp over the bleached image using amber clay fluid chalks. I also used my stamp positioner so I would get the correct placement, I hate guessing and then not being satisfied how the image looks. I didn't want to add to much too this card because if I did it would take away from the butterfly background I had just created so I just layered the butterfly verse to the front of the card.

This lighthouse card using two bleach techniques. First up I stamped and embossed my lighthouse image on blue card and then I filled my aqua painter up with fresh bleach to paint the areas I wanted bleached. I like this look as is but if you wanted to you could then color in the various areas that you have just bleached. For the background card for this one, I filled a spray bottle with bleach and spritzed the blue card and this is the result.
