The Technique Twist #6



I almost didn't do the challenge at The Technique Twist this week.  Bleach and I do not get along very well.  Bothers my asthma.  Then I saw that Jessica used a bleach pen for her card and thought I would try that.  I was going to use it to highlight my flowers from Flower Shop.

Well my pen was so old that it didn't work at all.  So I got out an old aqua pen and used that to brush on some bleach.  The bottom flower was the first one I did and I don't like it as well as the second, but I needed to get away from the bleach so I decided it would do okay for the card.  I set my flowers aside for a couple of days to let all the smell go away.

I am happy with the way this card turned out.  I doubt that I use this technique very much, but it was good to try it once.

Thanks for stopping by!
