Colorful Silhouettes

Hello folks. Beth Norman here.   I hope your week is going well.  This is a pre-post as I'm vacationing in the Maritimes (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton).  I live out east for 14 years and haven't been back in 20 years.  Wow, where does the time go.  I'm reconnecting with friends.  The highlight of the trip is I managed to buy two tickets for the Oak Island tour.  Al and I have watched The Mysteries of Oak Island for four years and am thrilled that we obtained tickets for a tour of the area. I managed to secure two tickets before they sold out in 15 minutes.
Anyways, onto my card.  I used the Colorful Silhouettes technique from the August 2011 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter which you can see here.


Using Colorful Silhouettes technique, once again, I used Downtown Boy Kitty, Hats off, and Burlap stamps.

The challenge is... Bleach Blocking!
You can see the original tutorial HERE

For this technique you will need:

white cardstock
dye inks (I used Ranger Distress inks)
plate (for bleach)
paper towel
bleach
ink blending tool (or sponge)


For my card I swiped dye ink pads. Hybrid and pigments inks do not work as well with this technique) across my cardstock. I used Ripe Persimmon, Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean inks. I made diagonal lines but you can use any ink design you want for your project. Make sure you have good ink coverage on your cardstock.


I folded a paper towel on my plate and wet it with bleach. 


Dip your blending tool into the bleach and create a pattern by "stamping" the bleach.


I used my MISTI tool along the Let's Play Around stamp set with black ink to stamp my image and sentiment.


How about a discount?
