Bleach technique

I have been trying out some different things this week and thought I would try the bleach technique. First I stamped the rose on pink card and then went over parts of it with a brush. Before I got halfway through the bristles on the brush had dissolved, obviously I was using the wrong type of brush! A cotton bud was the next thing to try and that worked well. The card and the scallopped mat are cuttlebugged with a Fiskars plate. This will be my card front for the September swop on the Cricut MB. AMENDED TO ADD it is better to heat emboss the image to make a ridge to stop the bleach spreading out where you do not want it.
