Sisters are the Best

Here is a page that uses the big blossom from Sell-a-brations and the Friends with Flower hostess kit. I used a bleaching technique for the "Sisters are the Best" element and the big blossom. The title I used All about U. That is a great set to mine for words.

For this Technique you will need any bleach. My favorite is the Clorox Ultra because it is more of a gel -and it doesn't splash!

1. Sponge desired color of craft ink (pigment ink) onto white cardstock. Make sure to cover the entire piece. Let dry.

2. Using a brayer roll a darker classic ink (dye based ink) over the top of the other color. Basic black does not work with this technique.

3. Make a makeshift stamp pad with folded paper towel and bleach, or apply to stamp with a sponge brush. Any household bleach works.

4. Stamp image. (Tip: make sure not to get too much bleach on your stamp or your image will look like a blob.)

Cardstock:So Saffron and Chocolate Chip, the patterned paper and stickers come with the scrapbooking kit. Ink: Tempting Turquoise and Only Orange craft and Chocolate Chip classic. Chipboard and twill tape are used as well.
