Default WT678 ~ Spring Cleaning Time ~ {03/08/2018}

It's Sabrina here as your hostess this week - and with Spring round the corner for those of us in the Northern hemisphere (according to Irish tradition, it starts on February 1st. Ha!!!) I was thinking about Spring cleaning. Let's get our bleach out and try some techniques using them. I'm listing a few tutorials - and if you have another technique please feel free to use it and tell us about it.

Bleached Out Images on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers

Stamping With Bleach on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers In my experience the results seem to vary hugely depending on your cardstock! I've seen other people produce beautiful results.

Rainbow Craft on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers
Watercolor Powders on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers (see step 6 in the tutorial)

For the purposes of this challenge I'm including Foxy Oxi on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers

And if you don't actually have any bleach - two faux effects:

Colorless Blender Bleaching on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers

Alcohol Ink Faux Bleach on Tutorial at Splitcoaststampers

I usually find that the fresher the bleach, the better it works.


Once you've used some bleach on your project upload it with the keyword WT678, and then come back and share a link here - that makes it easy for people to find your card .
Now you can go and do some real spring-cleaning with your bleach...


Here's a link to our Gallery at Splitcoaststampers gallery




Here's a link to my sample: WT678 Oceans of Fun by Cook22 at Splitcoaststampers


If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.

Many thanks to Lisa ,Cathy, Carla and Toni for their beautiful and inspiring samples, covering a wide range of options.

Ha! When I saw the title, I thought we were going to clean stuff off our desks and use it on a card!

I love the look of bleached images but don't do it often because of the fumes - this is a project best done outside if the weather cooperates . . . . Here is my offering for today:

I think I had tried this before but it was a long time ago. I liked my results using brushos as a bg.

Smile WT678 Acts of Kindness

Sabrina- thank you for the "Spring Cleaning" challenge! I went with the bleached out images technique- embossing my leaves and roses, then using bleach spray cleaner- dried with a heat gun. Did some coloring with markers, fussy cut and matted my images, then added my sentiment. A fun challenge- and all with items around the house!!

Hi Sabrina, thanks for the challenge...I used to stamp with bleach quite often but haven't for a long time. It also works really well on certain papers to crumple a paper towel and wet it with bleach them dab it on the paper, make a great decorative paper or bg.

Don’t do what I did and accidentally inhale the bleach fumes!
