Life is sweet....a card for Make it Monday #76 Double-time bleach stamping

Hello all,
It is Sunday afternoon and I am in my cool crafty area in the basement making a few cards using bleach for the Make it Monday challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog: HERE

You really need to let the bleach dry (or use a heat gun!) before you over stamp as Nichole mentions in the video.  I thought mine was dry enough but it was not and it does bleach out the over-stamping a little if it is not completely dry.  Though this can look grungy and old if you like that look!

Here is my first attempt - I kept it very simple and just stamped a butterfly from Love Lives Here down the side of my card.  I then made a mask and did my over stamping in various color inks like a rainbow.  The senitment is from "The Sweet Life" stamp set and is a new favorite.

Thanks for taking a look at my card.  Hopefully more to come before the Monday deadline.  This is a fun technique to play with.

:) Jill
Edited to add:  So excited that this card got a shout-out on Nichole's blog and Facebook!
