Bleached autumn leaves

This is my take on a bleach technique which Gina K demonstrates here.  I used PTI's leaf prints set and am pretty pleased with how it turned out. Tried bleaching a range of colours and the darker colours definitely work best.  Instead of using black embossing powder, I inked up my stamp using versamark followed by the black ink and embossed with clear powder:

Paper - cream card from stash, SU bravo burgundy, kraft, PTI ripe avocado
Stamps - PTI leaf prints
Ink - versamark, versafine onyx black, PTI vintage touch tea dye duo
Accessories - clear embossing powder, PTI linen/canvas impression plate, PTI ripe avocado saddle stitch ribbon, foam mounting tape, glue dots, bleach


  1. Very the white and avocado backdrop for the leaves. Beautifully done

  2. Lovely leaves, beautiful card.

  3. That's really cool! Giving me some ideas for a great set!

  4. Lovely leaves and I love the layers of coordinating card stock.
