Try Something New at Lasting Memories

This week at Lasting Memories the challenge is to leave that comfort zone and try something new. Maybe try a new technique or give a new product a try. I decided to get out one of my empty misters and fill it with bleach to see what the result would be. Here's how it came out:

Kinda cool huh? Now let me tell you that not all cardstock is created equal. Apparently not all CS will react to bleach in the same way. I first started with a sheet of chocolate brown super heavy CS from Club Scrap and there was no reaction; once it dried it was as if the bleach was never there. For my LO I used a sheet of navy CS from Stampin Up, which happened to react really well, a little spray bleach went a long way! I love how the navy bleached to a kraft color, can't wait to try this with other colors and see what happens.

Oh, and see that sweet little fabric butterfly? You can get some of your own from my Etsy shop- I have a few different colors to these in turquoise and red:

Pull out your bleach and give it a try, or come up with your own "something new" to work with. Be sure to share with us at Lasting Memories so we can see what you come up with!   I also have blog candy I'm giving away when I reach 200 followers, find out more about that here. =) T
