MIM #76-Double Time Bleach Stamping

Nicole Heady is revisiting an old technique with a bit of a fresh twist as shown in her video HERE  
She takes this technique  a step further and stamps over the bleached areas with color. 
I have never tried stamping with bleach, but it looked interesting, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm kinda liking this method and you may see me again ;o)
