I saw a post by BJ Peters on using bleach to alter the color of our paper and I thought it would be really cool to try this technique with the Fairy Celebration stamp set, I added the bleach to the flowers in the corner after putting everything together and you can see where the bleach dripped in the corner and on the tag, ARGH!

This card is super fast and easy. I used the Petals and More thinlits to cut out the corner flowers, then cut the same image out with gold foil and put it together like a puzzle.  Then I stamped the fairy image and “thank you” with Versa Mark and used gold embossing powder  to heat emboss it. I used an old blender pen to apply bleach to the corner flower, mushroom, flowers and the fairies’ skin.  I used multi-purpose liquid glue to add some glitter, after all what is a fairy without her glitter?
