Fifth Avenue Floral embossed and bleached

Heat embossing adds such lovely feel to the cards and allows so many techniques in addition. This is one of those techniques that I forget about but it is so dramatic and easy. I took chocolate chip CS, embossed fifth avenue floral in whisper white craft ( it is pretty just with this too.) and heat embossed in white to make it pop. I then used liquid bleach that I loaded onto the aqua painter (marked with BLEACH on the side so I don't confuse it with plain water ) and used it to just brush on the bleach on to the area that show as lighter. I then wrapped pink ribbon around the corner, put a button latte button on top tied with a linen thread and mounted the teey tiny wishes stamped onto pink pirouette CS then punched out with curly label punch and mounted under the ribbon. I really like the drama of this card. I would not put it in a scrapbook album given the acid in the bleach but for a card, it should be fine.
