Club Scrap Artist Team challenge: Bleach

Every month the Club Scrap Artist Team
has  a technique challenge and this
month it is 
~stamping with bleach~

You can find out about the technique on the 
I have two cards for you to share.
I have been trying with bleach on my papers,
but did not get a great result. Not every paper
works with the bleach. Then I remembered 
I did a technique called "Batik Bleach"
(click on the words and you have a printable tutorial)
and that is what I want to share with you here:
I put some papers in a box and took two spray
inks that fitted the papers of the
September "Transformations"- kit: blue and green.
You can use any spray ink you have.
I guess you know why the paper is in a box, because
you don't want ink everywhere on your desk!
After spraying let the ink dry or use your
heat gun if you are in a hurry.
Prepare a tray with a few layers of paper towel
and add some (cheap) bleach.
Take your stamp and use the bleach pad for
stamping. You will notice it takes a little while
to react completely.
These are the two backgrounds I made with some
of the rubber stamps from the
"Transformations"- kit.
Now the pannels are ready to use on a card.
This kit came with some beautiful sentiments
that are great to stamp on this background and
emboss with black embossing powder. The stones
are stamped on black paper and embossed with silver.
As i used only half of the stone pile on the front of the card, 
I used the other half on the inside for decoration.
The second card is with the ginko stamp.
As our neigbours have such a tree in front of their house,
I have many pictures and see that the eaves are starting to fall now.
Besides the bleached background, I also stamped the
leaves on shrink plastic for decoration on top
of the card as falling leaves, to go with the sentiment.

I glued them on the card with glossy accent and added 
also glossy accent on top of the leves to make them shine.
The little strip i had left over i stamped with gold
ink and the leave for decoration inside the card.

Thank you for looking!

Have a creative day!

Great bleach-stamped cards. The shrink plastic Gingko leaves are a fun touch!
