Make It Monday #76: Double-time Bleach Stamping

Here is my card for the double-time bleach stamping technique...Nichole has a video HERE.. I used hawaiian shores paper and stamped Lovely layers with bleach, after it dried I stamped over some of the bleach areas with other stamps from the same set.  I used Blueberry sky and hawaiian shores ink.  The sentiment is from a free set that was sent out last winter and it is stamped on vellum.  This was a very different technique.  The first thing I did was pull out a lot of scraps of the different color cardstock and stamped on it with the bleach to see how it reacted.  The simply chartreuse came out a bright yellow/orange, the rest of the colors it turned white like you see in my card, some cardstock was so very light that you could hardly see the design.  I think I would do this technique again, it was really interesting and fun to do!
