Bleached Eastern Blooms


I wanted to try some more techniques with bleach, so I tried out this one I found online, I embossed the flowers first with Stampin Stuff Boss Gloss embossing ink. I then used red and black embossing powder respectively. Next, I outlined and hi-lighted the internal part of the flowers with bleach, using my fantastix coloring tool by Tsukineko. I cut out my flowers and glued them to cardstock and used bella rose paper from SU. The stamp is Eastern Blooms from SU. I think it would have looked better if without the shiny gloss, maybe I will try them in Matte next time. Thanks a bunch for stopping by.
