Stampin' Up! Wild About Flowers!

Hey there! I haven't used the bleach technique in a long time, so I decided to use it today! I combined Wild About Flowers with the Hardwood Background, stamping the flowers with bleach on a layer of Crumb Cake, allowing the bleach to do it's work and dry, then stamped over the layer with a "stamped-off" Soft Suede-inked Hardwood.

Every card stock has a "base color" that is revealed when it comes in contact with bleach. I put a few layers of paper towel on a glass plate, then poured a few drops of bleach onto the towel but not enough to puddle. I "inked" the stems and blooms with the bleach to stamp on Crumb Cake. The bleaching action  revealed a So Saffron base color.  After drying, I stamped over with the Hardwood Background and sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink.

I punched a 1" x 4 1/4" strip of So Saffron with the Triple Banner Punch, stamped the greeting, sponging the edges with Soft Suede. It's added to the card front with dimensionals and wrapped with a Linen Thread.

Inside is a continuation of stamping with Wild About Flowers and sponging with Soft Suede. I even sponged the eges of the Very Vanilla envelope for continuity.
