Outlines – Bleach it or Not!

This week’s Outline Rubber Stamps challenge is:

Bleach it or Not!

The Outlines girls are featuring stamps from the Bleach it or Not line of stamps at Outlines.

Come and play with us! Each week some lucky player will win a $25 Gift Certificate from the Outline Rubber Stamps store!

See all the details on the Outlines Blog!

I chose I-129 Background Daisies and F-1049 Posy Greeting Centers for my card today. I used bleach in a Aqua-Flow Water Barrel Brush to lift the color from the paper after stamping the image. I added Ultra Fine Earth Flower Soft to the flower centers. The pearl accents were made with a Brown Pearl Pen.
Here’s a closer look at one of the flowers:
