Thinking of You, Butterfly card, Bleach Stamped

Hello, thanks for stopping by my corner of the world!!

I wanted to try this technique I came across.....bleach stamping.

I took a piece of cardstock (yellow) and large block stamp, a sided dish/bowl, laid paper towels down in the dish, poured bleach over the paper towels (just enough bleach for the paper towels to soak up), placed the block stamp on the bleached paper towels, just like an ink pad, dabbed it just stamped the cardstock. See the yellow piece of cardstock??

There is DEFINITELY a learning curve, but I creates a fun effect!! I also tried it with a blue piece of cardstock and a smaller stamp......once you see the inside of the card, notice the bleaching around the edges of purple piece of cardstock.
