Outlines - Bleach it or not!

Good Monday morning!  It's time for another Outlines challenge and this week's challenge is to use one of the 'Bleach it or Not' images.  I chose Summer Flowers (I-200), which I stamped using Archival black ink on the pale yellow paper.  I used a paint brush and painted bleach on the flower petals to turn them white.  It's really a neat effect, don't you think?!  I added the sentiment image, When there (D-609), which I stamped using Versamark and Versafine Onyx Black and embossed using clear embossing powder.

Please be sure to head over to the Outlines blog to get the details for participating in the challenge - you could win a $25 shopping spree in the Outlines Store!!  Also make sure you head over to each design team member's blog to check out their creations!

Great minds think alike, Robin, lol. I like yours better than mine, too much blank space on mine. Your bleaching is gorgeous, you left some of the yellow around the petals and it makes them pop off the paper, great job!!

Lovely job! I'm not sure why bleaching always seemed difficult to me... but with your description, I think I can give it a go! Love this!

Such a soft effect around the petals, Robin. This turned out BEAUTIFULLY!

Wow! Your bleaching results are beautiful, as well as the entire card, Robin! It's been a joy to be on the Outlines Team with you for the past 6 (speedy) months. Keep up the beautiful work!
