This is another of my Great Finds for one dollar! I love these big stamps but I find theyíre a challenge for me to color and this one was no different. First I tried to watercolor it but that didnít turn out the way I thought it should so then I thought about bleaching it. I think this technique worked better for me with this stamp.
I stamped the image with Versa mark and then heat embossed it with Black embossing powder. I bleached the inside of the bear image and the flowers. I colored in the flowers with markers. I used chocolate chip to stamp the image on and decided the background was to dark and the bear didnít show up so I bleached out the background and came in with my sponge and sponged several greens around the image.
EDIT: I knew there had to be a challenge for bleach and I just found it! Yeah!
