New Challenge at Technique Junkies

Today is the start of a new technique challenge at Technique Junkies:  Bleach Blocking.

Bleach blocking is really simple and the results are really fun!  Play along with us and enter for a chance to win a $25 Technique Junkies gift certificate!

My challenge sample card uses Distress ink as well as Distress Stains to create my background.  I then used a round sponge blender pad and regular bleach to remove color from my background panel.  I felt my circles of removed color looked so much like bubbles, that I actually used just a bit of distress ink and a paint brush to add just a bit of color back into edges of the "bubbles" to give then a bit more 3d look.

I then added Swirl Turtle and the Life is Beautiful sentiment in India Ink once the panel was completely dry.


  1. I love this! Great idea for adding color back in.

  2. Bleach blocking is SO fun thank you for reminding me about this process and your final work looks absolutely breath-taking and that added ink turtle is picture-perfect. Hoping to see more work.

  3. Very cool, I love the background too!

  4. This is a new thing of blocking. Bleach blocking would be a fun to do and i will surely follow the tips to do. I am sure to win the cutest too.
