Hey cardmaking friends welcome back. I have a new video and card making technique for you today, Distress Oxide Inks Bleached.
This technique is super easy. You simply blend all the colors together, heat emboss your image and then use bleach to remove some of the color.
A couple of tips for you to help you succeed with the technique.
- Work in a well ventilated room.
- Use new bleach. Old bleach that has been hanging around for years will not provide the best results.
- Protect your work area well just in case you spill. I use a small mason jar, with a rounded top for my bleach and have lots of paper towel handy just in case.
- I use an empty water brush with an acrylic tip, not one of my good watercolor brushes.
Start with a piece of Hammermill White cardstock cut at 6-1/2 x 8-1/4 and after finishing the technique, cut it in half to create two slimline cards. I give you the rest of the measurements in the video and in the downloadable PDF below
Next, I blended the Distress Oxide Inks over the card. My new fall blend for today is:
- Ground Expresso,
- Gathering Twigs
- Rusty Hinge
- Dried Marigold
- Abandoned Coral
The card kit has a set of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Design Tape (washi) in it with some of these colors and that was my inspiration for this color combo.
The kit also has a bottle of Liquid pearls in a beautiful Rose Gold which I didn’t use as I opted for Simon Says Stamp Autumn Mix sequins, but the Rose Gold would look awesome on this card.
Look closely at the leaves at the bottom of the right card. This was a happy accident. I painted them when the brush tip was almost dry, so the bleach didn’t take all the color out. Hard to achieve, but very pretty.
Here’s today’s Distress Oxide Ink Bleached Video.
