Bleached Out Or Not

This week the challenge at Sweet Stamps is : 
Each week we choose a winner from the challenge to win a $20 Shopping Spree at Sweet Stamps towards your purchase of rubber stamps. You can use any stamp for your card but if you use a Sweet stamp you receive two entries in the challenge.
Remember, you can only enter the challenge one time, those using Sweet Stamps images will get an extra drawing in the challenge. Please limit the amount of challenges to 10 (including ours)  You must link back to us in your blog post.
I used the following supplies:
Here is a link to a technique on Splitcoast Stampers if you would like to play along. You can also do a search for many more ideas.

My finished Design  one image was stamped on Kraft paper and the second one on Brown card stock.
I colored the fussy cut one with Copics to add color to the leaf area.
 Here is a close up of the image stamped  and then bleached with a paint brush and bleach.

The paper is from Authenique and is called Splendid...I just love the tones in the stack of papers.

Now won't you play along and pull out some bleach, and BE CAREFUL so you don't spill anywhere.
