Betsy's Blossoms and bleach

Chris (sis-in-law) is back from holiday now , so it was good to spend a day crafting again.
Really missed her last week!  Never mind - it will soon be my turn to go on holiday.
Enough waffle.  We did some serious crafting, I did a scrapbook page - which is something of an achievement for me, because it's not something that I have a penchant for.
I am really pleased with the result, but cannot post it on here yet - you will have to wait a while for that pleasure.  Chris gave me a hand with the finishing touches to a few swaps for Saturday and then made two cards that she needed to make.  Then we played....... with bleach!!
We were very careful and diluted it to be on the safe side, and we tried colouring in
 with bleach on various colours of card. We enjoyed this pastime (we like to play)
then after she had gone home, I played a little more and here is the result.

I used the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set and randomly stamped using bleach, Soft Suede,
Early Espresso and Crumb Cake onto Crumb Cake card stock.
I added a piece of retired SU ribbon, with a  matching ribbon slider from my stash (non SU)
then stamped the two tags using the Tint Tags stamp set and punched them
out using the matching punch and attached with Linen Thread.
I am quite pleased with the effect!
