Faux Bleached Birds & Blooms

Hello Sweet 'n Sassy Friends!  I have two cards to share today using the Alcohol Faux Bleach Technique and the new Birds & Blooms stamp set.  This is a fun technique and the bonus end up with two great backgrounds instead of just one!

Begin by embossing your image on a piece of glossy card stock with clear embossing powder.  Using a felt application tool, dab on a variety of alcohol inks or Copic Refill inks and blending solution or rubbing alcohol to make the inks move.  Play around with the inks until you get the desired results.  Place the panel on a paper towel on an ironing board and cover with another piece of regular card stock.  Iron off the embossing using heat with no steam.  The image will transfer onto the second piece of card stock and leave a bleached look on the first.  And there you have it....two wonderful backgrounds!  To see a video tutorial on this technique at Splitcoaststampers, click HERE.

Now all you need to do is finish off your cards.  Birds & Blooms, Texture Tiles 1, and Timeless Hymns were the sets used to create these two cards and they are all from the March Release and are now available at the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Store!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you were inspired to give this fun technique a try!
Have a blessed day!
