So, I knew you could stamp with bleach, but it never occurred to me to color with it! I came across THIS gorgeous card in the gallery on SCS and HAD to CASE it biggrin! HERE is a tutorial. The tutorial tells you to use a dry blender pen, but I never thought to save the dry ones, so I didn't have any that were dry and didn't want to ruin a good one. So I took an old cheap marker that was light colored and just rinsed the color out of the tip, and used it to pick up bleach (she uses gel in the tutorial, but I used regular bleach in a cup). I can't believe how easy this was!

Oh, by the way, did you hear that Addicted to rubber stamps has everything 25% off?!? It was supposed to be just yesterday, but the site was running so slow that they extended it until the 28th! I just couldn't help myself...I got ordered 4 Bellas last night! I'm getting ready to order some Copics, so I was gonna hold of on the Bellas for now, but I realized I'd only have to get 6 less Ciaos to get the 4 Bellas, so I just couldn't resist! Now I've got some Bellas coming, and getting ready to have 12 markers on the way! mrgreen I can't wait!!!

I'm horribly behind on my google reader again rolleyes. I keep telling myself I'm going to check it everyday so it's not so much, but I always forget. I love way too many blogs though! I'm hoping to get a little caught up today, but my house is a mess. I need to go clean up some before hubby gets home. Wouldn't want him to think I don't do anything all day lol.

Emily I really like this as I love lighthouses. This is a technique that I have never tried so you may have spurred me on.
