Bleached Flowerhead

Morning guys,

My turn this week for a Little Claire Friday Project and I have a cool simple card for you to try using my favourite LC "Flowerhead" and one of the sentiments from "Fabulous Day"

Have you ever tried using bleach on your card ?? I've used it to lighten the flower and make it pop, the card has been made using kraft card.

You will need:
LC Flowerhead and Fabulous Day stamps
6" x 6" kraft card blank
a4 piece of kraft card 
clear ink ( versamark )
black ink
black embossing powder
black ribbon
two black gem swirls
thin bleach
old paint brush 
black pen
sakura glaze pen

 Cut a piece of kraft card 5 5/8 x 5 5/8 and ink the edges.
Ink the" Fabulous Day" sentiment with clear ink and stamp at an angle then emboss with black embossing powder. 
Wrap a length of black ribbon round card twice, one to sit under sentiment the other in the opposite direction and attach.
Now glue onto card base.
Stamp again with clear ink and emboss with black embossing powder the Flowerhead twice onto the spare kraft card and fussy cut out.

Now comes the bleaching....WARNING bleach will bleach anything, clothes. dog, walls and kraft card, so please be careful !!

Paint all over the two Flowerheads with thin bleach and leave to dry...the bleach smell disappears when dry so please don't worry.
When dry give the flowers a bit of shape by curling the petals and glue together at centre. 
Using a black pen colour in seed heads and centre.
Add glaze to centre.
With a length of black ribbon make a loop at top, cross over and glue to card front, then add black gem swirls and attach flower on top.

One bleached Flowerhead card !!
