Penny Black Demonstration Cards

In my demonstration I used bleach with stamping. I only used it once, because it can be smelly and if you spill it, it is very iritating. Trust me! My hands were under cold water, and after lots of hand cream, it felt like forever before my hands felt better.  Sorry to those who found the smell irritating. I had planned to do other things, but because the smell got to those who came to the demonstration it was put away fast.

In this technique, I merely used a ruler to draw straight lines with the ruler. I discovered in the demonstration, it works on slightly darker colours better, and on textured cardstock, but with the textured side up.  Here is two variations on the card I made.

The first card in pink, is one I made as a sample prior to the demonstration matched with the sneak peak. The brown version was made on the demonstration day.

Do give your ruler a wash or rub bleach on the side you are going to use before applying to the card, because my rulers looked clean, but the bleach sure found dirt that was not visible to the eye!
