A big congrats to Denise, the newest Featured Stamper (FS579) on Splitcoast! She has a lovely little gallery & I chose THIS to case. I love the vibrant blue so I kept I kept that & most of the layout. I used different images, turned it horizontal & moved the greeting,
This is also for the Ways to Use It Challenge (WT678), to use bleach. I actually love using bleach on card stock…w/ all the different brands & colors, you never know exactly what you’ll get. For this, I stamped this southwest pot image w/ bleach onto the cobalt blue c/s. I was pleasantly surprised to see it turned a lovely turquoise color when bleached. The strip on the side was simply sprayed w/ bleach. After fussy cutting the pot, I used a lg bg die to emboss the turquoise panels then added a double stitched circle frame & some sequins & strips of paper for grasses. 

Here’s a look at the inside.

Just for grins, I sprayed a bunch of different colors of c/s  to see what bleach would do. Here are my results. (Click any pic to enlarge. If there’s a solid piece next to it, that was the original color.)

Julie Warner – I chose a morphed version of embossing resist. Morphed because I also added the twist of bleach. Most of the time I’ll white emboss the image when I’m doing emboss resist, but it just didn’t work very well with this geranium image. So I black embossed it on water color paper. A note about the paper…this isn’t the good stuff…it’s water color paper from the kid’s art supply section. I’ve found when I’m embossing, it does a better job than the good stuff. It’s smoother and not as heavy but it still stands up to water very well. After embossing, I used a combination of techniques. I added color all over w/ a large paint brush, water & some dye reinkers. To make it a little more intense, I also sponged on some extra colors using two Kaleidacolor ink pads. I also splattered a bit here and there then wet it down a bit to soften the splatter. Now for the twist..I took a tiny acrylic paintbrush dipped in bleach and bleached some color back out inside the flowers & leaves. The embossed lines kept the bleach from traveling. If you try this, you must use an acrylic paintbrush…the bleach will totally eat up the natural hair bristles. To further define the image, I added a hint of shadow using a red Copic & a green Copic below the flowers & leaves.

After die cutting the panel, I added a slightly larger, fussy cut black layer. Black die cut elements were added to the corners on the white layer. After matting this on black, I attached it back on top of the original water color bg the image was cut from. The die cut Hello was also shadowed in black.

Weekly-Favorite Welcome to the Our Daily Bread designs October Release!

Julie Warner -

For my first card, I used a brayer and a rainbow ink pad for the leaf background. On the small rectangles, I used a small acrylic paintbrush and bleach to remove the background. The individual leaves were stamped, die cut and colored with Copics to match the background. The greeting was stamped directly on the 4.25 x 5.50 card front and the background strips and die cut leaves were added on top. These are the Copics I used for the die cut leaves.

On my second card, I stamped the pumpkin, colored it with Copics and die cut using the matching die. It’s attached to a die cut ivory rectangle then to a larger dk maroon rectangle. The greeting was stamped directly on a lined ochre piece of designer paper. The dotted dp was die cut then cut in half attached to the left side along with a green Fancy Foliage die cut. I also die cut a couple of the leaves out of the two papers. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50.
