PTI Make-it-Monday - Bleach Technique

Hi friends!  Well, I wanted to play along with this Monday's PTI MIM, which involves a pretty cool bleach and ink technique.  I'm not sure that the card I made is what Nichole had in mind when she explained the technique (I think you're actually supposed to stamp on the bleached image), but I really like how this one turned out.  You'll see that this card features stars yet again.  If you flip through my blog, you will see that I'm sort of a star fanatic...funny that I didn't even know this about myself until I started making cards!

Here's my take:

Thanks for visiting!

Paper: PTI's White and Enchanted Evening
Stamps: PTI's Star Prints and Tag It's #10
Ink: PTI's Bluberry Sky, True Black and Snow White
Dies: PTI's Happy Day
Other: Bleach


  1. Love how your "rock" star card came out, Kate. This bleaching is a fun technique.

  2. Great job, Kate! The stars are perfect on the blue ground. They take on a golden look-just beautiful!

  3. What a great card!! That's a really cool effect! I'm off to find out how to do it!! :)

  4. Gorgeous! Love how you also showed the versatility of the Happy Days Die! :) Great card!


  5. Great card Kate!!! I love the colors you were able to achieve with the bleach and a fab card for your son!
