This card was crafted using the bleach washing technique which was Marsha’s Clean and Simple Saturday challenge at Christian Paper Crafts. I stamped and embossed the image and then applied bleach using an aqua painter. I also brushed bleach on the stamp and then stamped. Allow to dry, cleaned brush and Viola! It was as if the images colored themselves!
