Today’s purpose for making cards...
Firstly, it's Friday!  Let's have some fun trying out a new colouring technique.  Secondly, let's send out some "friendship" cards in the form of "Hello" or "For You".

Technique...
Today's colouring tool is the AQUA PAINTER and BLEACH.  We are going to paint a mixture of 9 parts water to 1 part bleach, onto coloured cardstock to get a fun look on the Ornate Style stamp images.

The Cards...

Card 1
I embosossed the large flower image using gold embossing powder.  Using a dauber, I rubbed half of the image with Night of Navy and the other half with Balmy Blue ink.  Using the Aqua Painter as a paint brush, I began painting over top of the flowers that I wanted to be lighter.  After the portions were dried with the heat tool, I reapplied the bleach mixture to lighten portions even further.

Card 2
I embosossed the large flower image using white embossing powder.  Using a dauber, I rubbed on Melon Mambo (I found it was staining the white embossing), Flirty Flamingo and Rococo Rose ink.  These colours quickly changed to white after using the bleach mixture.  Since these colours seem very sensitive to this ratio of bleach, I would increase the water portion, to allow for some differing colour levels. After the portions were dried with the heat tool, I added colour using the Stampin' Blends.

Card 3
I embosossed the large flower image onto Crumb Cake cardstock, using white embossing powder.  I put on the bleach mixture using the Aqua Painter.  I was surprised to see the paper turn yellow.  Adding more than two layers of bleach didn't lighten the colour any more.  Once the bleach layers were dry, I put Wink of Stella over top of the flowers to make them pop.

Card 4

I embosossed the daisy flower image using white embossing powder.  I painted on the bleach mixture once, onto the flowers and leaves.  To make the sentiment label less bright white, I stamped the scroll image in Petal Pink and stamped off twice before stamping onto the label.  I like the effect in the background.

Card 5


I embosossed the daisy flower image using white embossing powder.  I painted on the bleach mixture onto the flower petals twice and the leaves once.  I added some colour onto the flowers with Stampin' Blends markers.  The white background was stamped with the "clump of flowers" stamp.  I used Balmy Blue, stamped off twice and then stamped onto the white cardstock.  It added some interest to the paper and tamed down the bright white colour.

Who knew you could paint and change colours of the ink and the cardstock paper by using a bleach mixture!  I love how this technique complimented the Ornate Style Bundle?
