Such a fabulous challenge!

Hello all, what a great Friday Mashup challenge Lisa brings us today. I LOVE it.  Heat embossing and saying Thanks.  Easy peasy combo that one.  So get to it!!!

  1. Make a project featuring "Heat Embossing".
  2. Or Make a "Thank You (Grateful)" project.
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Thank You Project using Heat Embossing".
I have always wanted to try the bleaching technique, now this involves heat embossing so it was the one I chose to do my card.  The Stipple Rose was inked with versamark then I tapped the stamp into the black inkpad and stamped it onto River Rock then embossed it with clear embossing powder.

I filled one of my aqua paint pens with bleach and wrote bleach all over it so I don't get it mixed up with the water ones!  then I painted bleach inside the embossing.  I LOVE the effect, I've not watercoloured or added any ink to this as the colour came out beautifully with just bleaching the River Rock.

As I'm not the best photographer, I thought I'd add a close up of the main rose so you can see the detail.  This seems to have turned the background blue! but in reality it is River Rock, always artichoke on the leaves and just plain old household bleach on the roses.

Check out the the fabulous DT inspiration cards and join in!

  1. That looks great Kasey! I've never tried that technique but I sure like the way it looks, I think I'll have to give it a shot!

  2. Love the look of the roses on your card, Kasey! I keep telling myself I'm going to try that technique, but never do it. I guess I'd better get busy. TFS

  3. Kasey, your card is beautiful! I love the fancy bow going vertical down the side of the card, and your bleaching technique came out perfectly! I've never had a bleached card come out that well! Well done!

  4. Beautiful Rose, your card is lovey.

  5. Love this rose!!! Thanks for explaining the technique! Gotta try it myself!

  6. Oh Kasey, you have inspired me! Love the bleached roses combined with the embossing- and such a great way to apply the bleach! I will need to order more Aqua Painters now! :-) Thanks for sharing with all of us and so looking forward to stamping with all of you this month!

  7. Beautiful Kasey .. .. a great finished look using your bleach and I love your ribon embellishing too.


    Love Jules xx

  8. The Bleaching came out great Kasey.. I love how soft it looks.. sorry I'm late making my rounds from last week.
