Bleached Beauty

For this card, I was trying my hand at the bleach that hasn't touched my cardstock in a long time. I love this Artfully Asian set, and it cemented itself into my favorite list after playing with it a few times.

I first embossed the cherry blossom branches with Versamark and clear embossing powder. Then it was a small watercolor brush dipped in chlorine bleach that did the magic. The more bleach, the lighter the color. I used different amounts to create depth in the flowers. Then I painted the torn edge of the Elegant Eggplant cardstock with bleach to complete the look.

I hope you like it.
