Back to Basics Stamping and Colouring With Bleach

I am doing a Blast From the Past Technique that I learnt about many years ago and that is Bleaching.  It is amazing how it affects all the different colours of Stampin' Up! ® Cardstock.  It is kinda like a Science Project, but way more fun.

This is part of my Back to Basics Series where I am introducing Stamping to the New Stampers.

I have a special Facebook group just for these Back to Basics Topics.  Everyone is welcome.  You can join the group here.  I would love to have you.

So today we experimented with different card stock.  Here is a sample sheet with some of the more impressive effects with the Bleach.  As you can see the Basic Black isn't as noticeable as I thought it would have been, but it would make an awesome background.

Here is the card that I showed in the video using the Blushing Bride and the Prized Peony Stamp Set.  I will include the supply list below.

I thought it would be good to see a close up of what the bleach did.
