Bleach technique Christmas Card

At my Stamp Club this month we made this beautiful Christmas card.  The poinsettia was stamped with versamark, embossed in gold, bleached out the inside of the flower (I use my worn out blender pens to do this) and colored it with a real red marker.  If we hadn't bleached it, it would still have looked good, but by bleaching out the darker cardstock first you get more of the Real Red color.  Not bleaching it makes it more burgundy, and it really looked lovely just bleached and not even colored - kinda like the pink verigated poinsettias you can buy.  So just a little difference in how the finished card comes out.  It's fun to try and see the differences you'll get.

Here's the card finished.  I love the gold embossed on gold at the bottom front of this card.  So elegant.

Added the Rose Red to the inside of the card and stamped our sentiment and mistletoe (to match the envie).
Stop back tomorrow to see the technique card we made, and the other little project we did.  ~Maureen
