Bleach Stamping and a Little Ornament

Gingersnap Creations focus in December was bleach and how it can be used in crafting. The tutorials from Sharon, Debby and Jo were fabulous and showed just how much fun and how easy it is to use bleach for painting, stamping, .... I finished the bleach series experimenting with different stamps and different cardstock. You find the tutorial here!
Bleach stamping is sooo much fun and it creates effective and sometimes surprise images. I used one of my experimental ones to create a little hanging ornament
The base cardstock is covered with calico which I stamped with French images and Brilliance ink from Clear Choice Stamps ... some sewing aound the edges ... lots of ribbons and fibres at the bottom .... The focal point is the bleached and over-stamped image of a fleur de lis embellished with some gems and layered on some Bazill cardstock. The finishing touch is a little rose I found in my stash.
Happy Crafting! Petra.

Love these colors for an ornament! I will play with bleach, but only in my worse of the worse glad rags! I am one of those people who only have to look at bleach and I wear the spots!! Happy New Year!
