Bleached Background Papers

Unfortunately, these did not scan very well but they're really quite pretty.  I made these background papers for another swap in our Paper Traders group.  We stamped images onto black cardstock using bleach, then added color back in using various inks, and touching it all off with some metallic stamping - a really easy and fun technique!  You'll have to test your paper before you get started as not all cardstocks will yield good results.  I tried several (some of which didn't bleach out at all) and finally bought a few pages of Bazzill paper, which worked well.

I really love these background papers. While they may not have scanned well, I can well imagine how truly beautiful they are.
