Last but not least!

Here is my last swap card. Isn't it gorgeous? It's not often that I'm as happy with a project as I am with this one.
I used my favorite new stamp set, Inspired by Nature. I stamped the grass image onto Always Artichoke with bleach. I was expecting to get a pale yellow, but I got a beautiful pale plum instead! On top of that, I stamped the flowers with Chocolate Chip craft ink and embossed it with clear EP. I kept the card simple because I wanted the image to be the star.
Supplies (all SU): Stamps: Inspired by Nature; Paper: Pale Plum, Always Artichoke, Chocolate Chip; Ink: Chocolate Chip craft; Accessories: bleach, ticket corner punch, key tag punch, clear EP, Chocolate Chip narrow grosgrain ribbon, Rich Regals brads
Happy stamping!

Well this is just GOJUS. Plum huh? I see bleach fumes in my future. I agree, this turned out great!

WOW, that is beautiful!! I was just talking about bleaching with some customers at my stamp-a-stack and hadn't thought about using this stamp with that technique. Thanks for the inspiration! :-)
