Bleaching Elements

On this card I used bleach to color the image.  One of my favorite things about SU card stock is the amazing look you get with bleach.  To do this I heat embossed the image with Black embossing powder and painted on the bleach with a tiny paint brush. 

After the bleach dried, I sprizted the front with the Spritzer tool and added the Victorian Lace ribbon.  (Really, I thought I’d ordered both crocheted ribbons but ended up with two of the same! You will see lots of this ribbon, I’m afraid!) 

I stamped off the smaller image in the set and punched it out with the Designer Label punch and then added the sentiment and pearls. 

Stamp set – Elements of Style
