Beginner Class Winter Session Week #4!

My poor girls from my weekly Beginner's Class were on hiatus for 4 weeks while I was with my Dad. Not knowing what the outcome was going to be, I called the Adult Ed Office and told them to put my class on hold until further notice. Last week we were back at it and the girls learned a few new things. These were the two cards we created together:




For the first card, I showed the girls how to use a piece of wood to glue a piece of burlap ribbon to and to use the burlap as a stamp. This was a Homemade Stamp. We inked the burlap and you can see on the largest white layer, the background that was stamped with the burlap:




The burlap gives the background a nice rustic feel to go with the High Tide stamp set. We even added some smaller sized Burlap Ribbon for a little bit of decor:




The High Tide stamp set is a two-step stamp set. This stamped layer was a little advanced for a beginner class but all of the girls did exceptionally well with the images.




Card two uses the Bleaching Technique. The first step was to stamp all of the images using StazOn Jet Black Ink. I then dug out an old Blender Pen that I labeled "bleach"  and we colored all of the flowers with bleach. The bleach changes the color of the cardstock as you see here:





We set this project aside to work on the other card while everything dried. Once we were ready to continue, we used colored pencils to add just a hint of color in the center of each flower and a little on the stems. Notice that the bleach turned the Crumb Cake Cardstock flowers a yellow tint. It was easy to add color on top of the bleaching:



Today is Tuesday and we are meeting this morning for Week #5 so be on the lookout for a post soon. The girls wanted to use butterflies in their projects this week so if you are a butterfly lover, stay tuned!

  2. I love the bleached card! I've tried bleach before with no luck. I guess my bleach was too old. I bought a bleach pen once and hubby used it on stains! (can you imagine?! the gall of him! hee hee).
