The title says it all…we had to use bleach and it smells and give me a headache!
Background is the bleach method. I did little sponging on the image panel and the rest is just straight cuts. The ribbon is tied first then the ends are taped to the back for a tighter fit. Rock and roll technique was done for the flowers but it sure doesn't show much.
40 minute card and that included some clean up and getting that bleach to the garage and finding a fan!

Another pretty card! The bleached background is very pretty. I've tried this technique a couple of times with bad results. I wonder if I put too much bleach on my stamps. I also can't take the smell of bleach. I bought a bottle of scented bleach and that was ok. You did a great job on this one.
I heard the dishwashing gel works without the smell. Haven't tried it cuz this isn't one of my favorite techniques but do like the results. You achieved a great look. (What we won't suffer through to make a great card!)
