Repeat Impression Weekly Challenge

Hi -- today Wendy, owner of Repeat Impressions has a sketch for us to try.
For me this is going to be a totally neat way to give a gift card. It goes inside the envelope and is sealed with a sticky dot under the brad.  This was for a wedding present.  So here's my card using silver, black and grey.

The sentiment is called Celebrating you..... and a sneak peak at a new frame series Wendy is cooking up!  How about joining us in this challenge?

it can be a 3D project, a scrapbook page or card - let your imagination run wild!!  Just use the sketch as your guide.  We look forward to seeing what you will do with the challenge.    You don't have to use Repeat Impression stamps but if you do, your name will be entered twice (2x) for a random drawing for a really nice gift certificate from Repeat Impressions.  Check out Wendy's blog, The House That Stamps Built for the complete guidelines and link your project there.   

Here is the list of Rock Star Designers who have made something to inspire you.  Good luck - and I'm looking forward to see your projects.

Project of the Week for Repeat Impressions

Good morning!  It's my turn to do a Project of the Week for  Repeat Impressions and I just recently saw the bleach technique and found it easy and fun.  Repeat Impressions has quite a few really great stamps that work well with this technique.

Supplies for this technique are:

Bleach - any kind
solid or silhouette stamps
dye ink - any brand name - I've used Gina K Designs, Hero Arts and Momento
applicators or small brushes
The first step is to stamp images of your choice on card stock to use as a background.  I used a MISTI so that my images got full and complete coverage.
Then I poured a small amount of bleach into a small container and dipped my applicator into the bleach and quickly painted or sketched onto the stamped image.
The application of bleach changes the color of the dye ink.  Be careful not to splash or drip where you don't want it -- it might mess up your stamping.  Here are two of the finished cards:

The solid images I used are Maple Leaf Silhouette and Large Balloon Silhouette.  The sentiments are Happy Birthday from the Quartet Compliments and Happy Birthday from....

Hope you give this technique a try - it's easy and lots of fun.
