Out with the bleach.

I decided it was about time I got the bleach out. No don't panic I haven't been doing the dreaded HW just decided to have a play with embossing folders and a bit of bleach.
The inspiration for this card began when I realised I hadn't used my Martha Stuart around the page punches for a long while. So out came the punch and lying on my desk was an odd (not strange!) piece of brown bazzill card and it progressed from there. I decided to emboss the centre of the cut square and came across the lovely bird folder ( something else that I had neglected to use for a while). That's when the bleaching technique came to mind, so I painted the embossed image with the bleach and voila! I prettied the shabby design up (roughed up the edges and added glitter) with some glittered butterflies cut with an MS punch and some flowers made with organza ribbon.
I did bleach the kitchen sink while I'd got the bleach out  so that  I didn't feel too guilty (as if!).
