Just for you Scarecrow

Here is a fun card with a shrink plastic scarecrow element and a bleach technique. 
   Shrink plastic can be scarey but if you just follow a couple of simple rules you shouldn't have any trouble.  First sand both sides of shrink and use the proper inks such as Brilliance fast drying pigment, Colorbox or VersaMagic chalk ink pads and any permanent inks like Ranger Archival inks or Staz-On.  
   Bleaching has different looks with each cardstock you pick.  Here I used a goldenrod color cs which gave a nice vanilla effect after bleaching.  After the bleach out image dried I added some color with artist chalks.
