I started with a 5 x 7 inch white easel card blank. Then a cut a smaller matt out of white card and coloured this with barn door Distress Ink applied with Cut'n'Dry Foam. This was dried with a heat gun.
I then chose a Paper Artsy stamp and stamped onto the coloured mat with Versamark ink and heat embossed the design with clear detail embossing powder. I then went over the image again with more of the same colour Distress Ink. I then covered the matt with some brown paper and ironed over the paper to melt and remove the heat embossing to reveal the lighter one coated layer below.
The matt was edged in black Memento ink and further stamped using more Distress ink and a flourish stamp. The matt was then stuck in place.
The sentiment (Papertrey Ink) was then stamped in black Versafine ink to finish. This is one easy way to produce a faux bleach effect.
