Day 5 - GIU girl - Bleach it!

stamps used:  Hug stamp set by Unity stamp co.
supplies used:  bleach, q-tips
This is Day 5 of my GIU girl guest blogging ... that means it's the last day, and I wanted to Thank Unity for giving me the opportunity this week to be one of their guest bloggers.
For today I went down to the basement where our washing machine is so I could get the bleach.  Earlier this week I raided the kitchen, and today it's the laundry supplies.  To start off I stamped and embossed the big flower from the Hug stamp set.  Next, I do what I call select bleaching by dipping a q-tip into bleach then using that q-tip as a paint brush to paint the bleach inside the flower.  As you can see I did this technique on several colors of cardstock because each one comes out different.  After the bleached out flower dries you see the color of the core of the cardstock.  The two most dramatic ones were the rust and light blue cardstocks ... the rust came out yellow and the light blue cardstock came out to a pinky white color.  I finished the cards by using the rest of the background images from the same stamp set, added some ribbon and other embellishments.  
***Don't forget to comment to be included into the drawing for the Unity stamp grab bag prize of 25 stamps.  I will be picking two winners from all the comments this week.  Please be sure to leave a current email in comment so I can contact the winners.***
