Bleached Floret

I cased my good friend and super-talented stamper Laura for this card, using a bleach technique. I love the color combination of Pink Pirouette, Rich Razzleberry and Very Vanilla. Though it is not clearly visible in the photo, I embossed the upper half of the Very Vanilla cardstock with Background One Texturz Plates.

The focal image was stamped with Versamark onto Rich Razzleberry card stock, then heat embossed with silver embossing powder. To bleach out the inside of the image, I used a Blender Pen. Make sure you designate one of your Blender Pens solely for this purpose, and be sure to label it. I dipped the blender pen into a little saucer of bleach. There should be plenty of bleach on the pen, though not drippy. The bleach will take a few minutes to take effect. If you would like a lighter image, go over it again, but don't press too hard as you will damage the cardstock. Give it a few minutes to dry before you assemble the rest of your card.
