Bleaching without Stamps

My second YouTube video featuring the bleaching technique was shot the same day as the first, and was Aldo's suggestion for those who wanted to use the bleaching technique but didn't have any stamps. This one was billed as a good activity for kids to make their own card for Mom.

I cut the letters out using some leftover lightweight cardboard, and substituted a heart shape for the "o". I taped it down using double-stick tape, which you see in the video I have some difficulty removing!, and sponge around it.

It's a bit crude, but it's quick and easy, and I agreed with my producer that providing an alternative to stamps made the technique that much more accessible to anyone.
