Bleach Meets Stencil

IMGP9949Someone in my Yahoo! group mentioned using bleach in a spray bottle with stencils.  So, of course I had to give it a try!

I simply placed a Happy Birthday stencil over a piece of rose colored cardstock.  I filled a mini-mister bottle with bleach, and used it to “spritz” the bleach over the paper.  Voila!  I used my Scor-Pal to make a border on the un-bleached section.  I matted it on a piece of the same cardstock, and added a couple butterflies punched out of the same cardstock – with pearls for the bodies, of course!  (The punch is by Martha Stewart.)  The base of the card is Very Vanilla by Stampin’ Up!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
