White Blossoms

Limited Supply Challenge #149
I was inspired by the challenge today- use no White or Vanilla cardstock in your card. Here is the card that I came up with. Using Basic Black Craft, I stamped the flowers in Ruby Red paper and did embossing. After I embossed, I used the Aqua Painter and bleach on some of my petals. I left certain areas in their original Ruby Red color.
I used this Jelly roll pen that gives the flowers a glittery look, but it is hard to see in the pic. I applied it also around my sentiment.
RECIPE:
Stamps: Embrace Life, All Holidays
Paper: River Rock, Ruby Red, Basic Black, DSP Ginger Blossoms
Ink: Black Craft, Basic Black
Accessories: DS Ribbon, Black Brads
Tools: Small and large Oval Punch, 11/4",13/8' Circle Punches, Jelly Roll Pen

Nice job on the bleaching. I have tried the technique -- sort of -- with a castaway pad, but have not had much success. I have never tried the bleach in a water brush, I can't get over the idea of having bleach in my craft room and the fear of bleaching everything out! LOL It is not like I am careless, but I think I do have a serious bleach phobia! Beautiful card.
