Bleached Colorwash Sprays

I had a lot of fun with this technique so I thought you might like to know how I did it.

Lighthouse at night
By Sue Lorang (Sue4stampin)

Stamp by Lasting Impressions with Panache
Lighthouse on cliff 171-001M
Black Embossing ink & Powder
Adirondack Color Wash in Denim & Eggplant (Doesn’t work with Memories Mists)
Water Brush
Yellow Marker
White Black & Purple Cardstock
Vinegar & water mixture (1/2 & 1/2)
Paint brush

Spray the white cardstock with Eggplant Color Wash, let dry, then spray again with the Denim and let it dry completely. Stamp and emboss the lighthouse image. Put bleach in a water brush and bleach the clouds and lighthouse. Set aside to let the bleach work. Repeat Bleaching the lighthouse till it is mostly white. Paint with vinegar water to neutralize the bleach. Color in the yellow light. Layer this on black and then a dark purple.
