Coloring with Bleach - A Tutorial

Good Afternoon lovely ladies! 
Sharing the tutorial for a very simple bleaching technique that I did for the Color Conceptions Challenge Blog.  I am sure many of you would have already seen or tried this earlier but for me this was a first attempt & I loved the effect. So sharing a small pictorial with you all.
These are the supplies you will need for this - card stock (darker colors give better results), embossing powder (clear/white/black), stamp, embossing buddy, versmark inkheat tool, bowl, applicator brush, fabric bleach (I have used Rin fabric bleach. Please make sure you use fresh bleach for best results ).

Heat emboss the image.

Pour a small amount of bleach in the bowl from the bottle.
Apply bleach using a paintbrush to the portion of the embossed image you want. It is magic to see the color change almost immediately!
Continue to add bleach until the entire image is bleached out.

Here are the final images. 

Each color & card type will give varying results. By bleaching we are actually taking away color from the image. See how it reacts with a fuchsia CS. 

Let dry & your image is ready. Use it to make a card, a tag, a bookmark anything you want. 
Here is a completed card in which I have used brown cardstock.

Thank you so much for visiting & taking the time to comment on my blog. I love to hear from you & truly appreciate your feedback. Have a crafty day!!
