Swirl Bats and Bleach Haunted House

It's hard to believe that Halloween is right around the corner!

It was fun to work on this Halloween card for Prickley Pear
Rubber stamps. They have these awesome new Halloween
and fall stamps. And along with Prickley Pear well of course
I have added a little PK Glitz glitter.

I wanted to try something I have never done before....
I stamped with Bleach! I know.... crazy! I did use the non-splash kind.
I took a papertowel added a little bleach and dabbed the stamp.
I then stamped it on black, and the magic took place... it
slowly started to show up...and I LOVE how it turned
the black paper ORANGE!

Rays embossing folder
Amy arts ribbon
SU clip
Hamptons art Embossing powder
PK glitz glitter
Bleach for stamping
Solid Paper-Archivers
Versa Magic ink
Score tape
Memento ink
Slate Distress ink
Pop dots

Cut the purple paper to card size. Run it though the Cuttlebug using the Rays folder. Add distressing ink to the edges. Add the ribbon by using the score tape. Tie it into a knot on the side. Cut the black paper panel and using bleach stamp it on the black paper. Let the paper dry completely. Mount the black panel on another black panel with pop dots. Using scoretape go around the top black panel and add the glitter. Mount that whole panel on a coordinating orange paper. Stamp the bats on matching purple and cut them out. Using pop dots add the bats onto the card. Stamp the saying with versamark on cream paper add the rust embossing powder. Edge that panel with versa magic ink. Add it to the card with pop dots and the little clip.


  1. Thanks so much for your continued inspiration! I just love this card!

    I have only done bleaching once. This is the perfect image for that technique! Love it!
