Today's WT403 challenge is to use bleach on your card. I had no bleach but I had a Ranger Castaway bleach pad, which is supposed to have the same effect of using bleach. I have had it for about four yrs but have never opened or used it. When I stamped my image on SU Night of Navy, I thought it was going to lighten the image and it actually deepened the color! Go figure. It may have something to do with the fact that it's four yrs old? Do ya think? Hee! Anyway ... it also added vertical lines to the image. That is a total mystery because it was not on the stamp or the glass. Must have to do w/the fibers in the paper? Not sure. I did try to stamp on a SU light blue cardstock and it made the image darker than the paper, as well. Hmmm. I decided that since I made a genuine effort to use bleach, I'd go ahead and upload it. BTW, IRL it does have a neat appearance but you have to hold the card closer than arm's length to see the charm of the image. :) I used yesterday's SC413.
THANKS FOR LOOKING! :)

So the mystery of the castaway bleach pad will always remain......a mystery, perhaps! I'm glad you decided to upload it anyhow, good for you! Nice color combo, and I like the twine~ Oh, and my husband's birthday is November 25th also, and mine is today~
Make the most of today, because tomorrow holds no guarantees!
