Playing with bleach some more

It's the Play Date Cafe' Challenge, and the colors are charcoal, ash, and butter.   Perfect for my forays into stamping and bleaching.  Tim Holtz's mini-jalopy was stamped and heat-embossed on the charcoal cardstock; I bleached the open areas with a water brush dipped in Clorox.    Designer papers are from Authentique's "Blissful" and Teresa Collins's "Carolina Breeze."

I love what you are doing with bleach...I can´t take the smell of the stuff so that is one product that you won´t find in my "lab".....but I love the effect you show.

Hi Evelyn,
What a fantastic card - luv the soft colors. Would never have thought to use pearls as an accent with the "old" car - terrific!
Luv your blog header too.
