Bleached Beauty

The technique video on StampTV by GinaK Designs this week is two methods of using bleach to create your image. Here is the card that I created for the using bleach making your own bleach pad with paper towels:

I stamped the flowers onto the dark green mat cardstock that came in the Floral Frenzy StampTV kit. I actually sponged around the edge very gently to frame the flowers and soften the edges just a bit.

I used a white top note die for the white side and used my new Tim Holtz swirl mask to create the design. I used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo distress ink to sponge over the mask. I added white antique lace on the left side of the main image, tied a piece of beautiful golden ribbon to the image. The ribbon was a free gift with a purchase from Ellen Hudson's store. (that is where I buy my Variant inks to refill my copic markers).
I added 3 brown dew drops in the upper right corner and added faux stitching around the edges and my card is complete.

Hope you have a great day!
