For last Wednesday’s Newsletter I updated the Bleached out Image Tutorial on Splitcoaststampers. For the new sample I used one of my favorite Crafty Secrets stamps, the Roses.

I stamped the image in Black Soot Distress ink on Kraft cardstock and embossed with clear embossing powder. Next I used a brush to apply bleach over the image. The bleached cardstock turned a light yellow.

Once the bleach dried, the image was colored with Copic Markers (Y21, Y32, G21, G24, G28). The cardstock was cut with a Grand Circle Nestabilities die and stitched on a piece of Vanilla cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Circle Nestabilities die.

A 3″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Hometown October Afternoon Paper was adhered to a 5 1/4″ square of the same patterned paper (other side). The layer were stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Vanilla cardstock. May Arts Ivory Silk Ribbon was tied around the horizontal paper strip.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 5 3/4″ x 11 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock, folded in half. The image layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals. Latte Kaisercraft Pearls finish off the card front.

Here is a video for the visual learner:

P.S.: I am not sure if I get a post ready for tomorrow. The last few days I have been prepping like crazy for my next class at Simply Scrapbooks this Saturday. I am also trying to work ahead for next week! We are going back to Florida for a week during the kids spring break! We can’t wait!  To be warm without a space heater or lots of layers of clothing…..To feel the sun warming your skin while lounging on the beach…..HEAVEN!
