Craft Stamper Take It, Make It Challenge - Bleach Blocking



Are you ready for a new challenge at Craft Stamper Take It, Make It?  This month it's bleach blocking, but don't worry, you don't have to use bleach to achieve this effect - plain old water is the magic ingredient.  Well, that and Distress Inks.  We want you to create a background with Distress Inks, then with a clean wet piece of foam stamp into your background.  The Distress Inks will react with the water leaving you with a paler area.  You can use a clean blending foam pad, but I used a piece of Cut-n-Dry (grey side).

I had two die-cut rings lying about so I swooshed them through the leftover Distress Ink on the craft mat, cut them up and overlaid them on the card.

The sentiment is from Neat & Tangled Everyday Labels and the chevrons are from STAMPlorations Vignette: Chevron and Arrows.

So what's on offer to the winner?

You get published in the UK's best stamping magazine
You get a guest designer spot in an upcoming challenge
You a lovely prize too!  Hop on over to the Craft Stamper challenge for all the details.

  9. I really, really like how some of the bleached out areas have that extra dimension to them...Some look like they are floating - so clever!
    A beautiful make Shirley.
