I had a request for a Stamping School video to use the Pleasant Pheasants
stamp set with the Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers or watercolor pencils.
I found myself googling ‘pheasant colors’
because I had no idea which colors to use!
They are very pretty birds, especially the male.
- Stamp image with VersaMark ink pad and use clear embossing powder to heat emboss image. This sets it and protects the image from getting bleached.
- Keep a ventilated work space. I only used 1 tablespoon bleach and dipped an old blender pen into the bleach and ‘colored’ the cardstock where I wanted to bleach.
- It dries fast and the bleaching happens as it dries. If you are impatient, you can use your heat gun to quicken the process but again, ventilation is important.
- You can reapply more bleach to lighten the areas more.
- Cardstock that is white on the inside or the core won’t work as well. Try it with our Stampin’ Up card stocks, which have color all the way through.
- Be prepared for everyone to say how clean your stamp room smells! They will think you’ve been cleaning all day.
I used the Merry Christmas Thinlits dies for the sentiment label
and added a cute copper brad and some copper edged ribbon.
The paper strip is from the Country Lane designer series paper in the Holiday catalog.
