MIU#12 : Bleaching

Happy Easter!  We have a fun challenge for you over on the Mix It Up challenge blog this month.  Our theme is Bleaching. 

This was my first time using bleach for a card.  I used a small paint brush and applied the bleach through a stencil to create the background for this card.  It's not perfect but for my first attempt I think it's okay.  LOL.  I used colored pencils to color the bicycle.

Recipe:
colored pencils
Unity Stamp Co - I'd Go Anywhere (bicycle), Let Your Wishes Fly (sentiment)
bleach
Tim Holtz bricked stencil
peach glitter cardstock

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you had a very Blessed Easter.  Come play along with us at MIU this month.
