Bleached out Chiswick cardstock elements.

Posted on 19 Sep 2014

It’s time for another Chiswick blog post and I had loads of fun incorporating their stickers, chipboard and cardstock into my PL layout for July.

PL layout cardstockFor todays project I used my pink Chiswick cardstock and wanted to see how it would bleach out – yes with good old normal household bleach – and it worked even better than what i imagined. I dipped the pink cardstock into the bleach and it sucked up that bleach like it was a thirsty camel in the desert….it was quite amazing to see. On my heart I punched you can see how the bright pink bleached to a light cream – perfect for my colour scheme i was working with.

I also used some of my Chiswick inks and stamps to create the custom element for my layout – quick and easy and so versatile!
I used a piece that was totally bleached out to back the plastic word bar to make it stand out beautifully. Hard to believe that the pink bleaches to a soft cream colour.

I used the pink to cut this beautiful trellis and then backed it using a soft aqua colour cardstock.

For my embellishments I used some of the Chiswick range of stickers and chipboard elements. On this photo I added the sticker to overlap at the bottom, and then cut off the overlapping piece and added a staple to finish it off.
