Bleaching Technique - Card 2 - Feeling Sentimental

I've been continuing to experiment with bleach stamping and have learned a few things.  First of all, don't be generous with the bleach.  After applying bleach to the stamp, stamp off a few times and then stamp the final image.  You'll get more detail that way. Secondly, use the stamp-a-ma-jig to overstamp the bleached image.
Here's the second card for class:

This time I bleach stamped the image onto Cajun Craze cardstock and over stamped with Black Stazon ink.  I then die cut the image with the Oval framelit and mounted it onto a black windows framelit.  The designer paper is from the spring catalogue - Parker's DSP, and the sentiment is from a retired stamp set "Happy Greetings"
