Bleached Hydrangea

I just got home from my downline meeting in Springfield. What fun! I loved all the sharing and samples everyone brought to display. It always re-energizes and inspires me to be with other demonstrators! Here is one of the make and takes from the meeting. I also did this with my stamp club last month.

The hydrangea is embossed in black and then we "painted" inside the embossed lines with bleach using a cotton swab. The bleach changes the color of the cardstock, but the embossed image remains. If you wanted to, you could add color to the bleached area with Stampin' Pastels or Stampin' Write markers.

The finished card size is 4-1/4" x 4-1/4".

Supplies: Because I Care, Marina Mist ink & cardstock, Versamark ink, Very Vanilla cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, Newsprint DSP, Black Embossing Powder, Basic Black 1/4" Taffeta Ribbon, Large Oval Punch, Scallop Oval Punch, Corner Rounder Punch
