This masculine card was created using the bleach technique. I stamped the rubber stamp onto paper towels which had been lightly soaked in bleach. Then stamped onto the cardstock. If it was too wet, we just used our heat gun to dry it. I also used bleach from a spray bottle to mist it. Just make sure to clean the rubber stamp with water on a paper towel. I used twine and a button to make it more masculine.

Ink: Chocolate Chip
