Bleach is not just for cleaning!

September's Technique challenge is stamping with bleach.  I was a little nervous about how much I was going to screw this up and just reek havoc with my carpet and/or clothes.  I managed ok.  I actually really enjoyed this technique minus the smell.  Got a little carried away and started edging with bleach and cutting out images...stopped myself when it came to splatter.  I didn't want to push my luck.  I found the green cardstock bleached the best from the Transformations kit.

You can see the original post with instructions at Club Scrap.
Here I used the coin stamp, cut out the centers and punched the coins.
PS. I'm improving with my craft knife :)

 The small block stamp was stamped with bleach multiple times to create a background.

 The Ginkgo leaf turned out to be my favorite stamp when using the bleach. I loved how the small details emerged.

Thanks Marya for the wonderful tutorial!
