    I had fun with a bleach pen with this one - it worked very quickly, so I advise doing one at a time so you can wash the bleach off the moment you want it to stop working. I found out by googling that you can reverse the possible damage by bleach (long term) by treating with Hydrogen Peroxide.

    Anyway, I thought the bleaching looked a bit fuzzy, so I then added in some green permanent marker for a bit more fun

    I'm still looking for that darn bleach pen. I keep forgetting when I get to Wally's and I'm sure they have it. I just love your newest trick!

    Not mine, I'm afraid, a quilty friend got some from Amazon because we couldn't find anything like that here. She went searching for them after I bleached some flowers on another block with just thickened domestic bleach and a fine artists brush. I had more control using those than with this pen, but it was really quick, so I'm not grumbling,

    Love it! I did a similar thing with coloured cardstock, back when I was passionate about cardmaking. Now my passion has turned to quilting - BIG TIME!!
