I always have a very hard time making a good Father's Day card for my Daddy.
Can you see the bleach?
Stamp Set: Dapper Dad, Oh Hello, that word set :)
Paper: Vanilla, Basic Gray, Riding Hood Red
Ink: black stazon, basic gray, Bleach
Tools: Big Shot, oval framelits, square lattice embossing folder, occasions paper piercing template, paper piercing tool and mat, small heart punch, aquapainter
Accessories: dimensionals, cute clips
Bleach Technique: This is not a new technique by any stretch. It's just one I rarely use. Probably b/c I am lazy when I am stamping. The bleach will lose it's effectiveness after a few days so test it first and you might need to refresh. For the gray strip, I took a small stamp box and folded a paper towel down in it. Then I poured bleach right on it to make my own ink pad. Then, I filled up an aquapainter halfway (don't even need that much) and painted the argyle part of the shoe. After you use the aquapainter (#103954), use the heat tool to watch it turn cream so fast. Kinda fun.
Try the bleach on all your favorite colors. I'm dying to stamp the swallowtail in stazon and then color the inside with bleach.
I hope my daddy likes this card :)
On another note, I was right the other day about seeing a new photopolymer stamp set and here it is! I will be getting this one. I love these sassy sayings! It's called Bombs Away Birthday. #133411
