Well you can. Using bleach.
These are the cards that the ladies did in class this week and they have all had beach applied to change the colour of some of the card stock.
For this first card I used Strawberry Slush (yes I know it's retired) card stock, as I had a stack of it left and couldn't stand to see it go to waste. (oops the stamp set is retired too...lol) I am sure that you get a similar effect if you used Melon Mambo. I can't say for sure as I didn't try it. But what I learnt when creating these cards,is that you can't predict what the card stock will do when bleach is applied. Some colours I tested and the bleach did nothing. Other's changed just ever so slightly.
You might remember a few weeks ago I did a scrap page using the Swallowtail stamp and bleach. Well I really loved how it turned out, so I decided to incorporate it into a card as well. I love how the bleach turns the Basic Grey card stock into a So Saffron colour. So it was only natural that I added a Butterflies Thinlit butterfly in So Saffron and another in Basic Black. I decided to not put a sentiment on this card as I think it would detract from the gorgeous butterflies.
As I mentioned earlier, some card stock changed every so slightly when bleach was applied. This Night of Navy card stock was one of those. It actually changed to a lovely green colour. Perhaps if I used a different stamp you would be able to see the colour change better. It is easier to see in real life.
I hope I have inspired you to try this technique soon.
Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great day.
