Tuesday's Tool, Technique, or Tutorial...

Today it's a TOOL! I'd like to share an experience with you. The other day I needed a card and only had about 20 minutes before I needed to walk out the door to an event. I spent most of that time creating a beautiful card befitting the occasion...only to make a horrible mistake at the very last possible minute. I did not have enough time to restart my card and I wanted a very special card for the recipiant! So a thought came to my mind. My card base that I made the mistake on was Whisper White Card Stock. I thought to myself...I wonder what would happen if I took my Aqua Painter brush filled with bleach to that very small portion of the card where I inadvertantly got ink??? So I always have one of my aqua painters filled with straight liquid bleach for using it on bleached technique projects, and I tried to see if it would take away that ink. I was estactic with the out come - it took the ink right off and my card was as if it had never happened! So the next time you make a mistake and can bleach it out - try it!
