Stamping Can Be Hazardous To Your Health!

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!! Here is my card for today's Color Challenge on SCS, CC231, Don't Fade Away, which was to use any color combo you want, but to stamp with bleach!! This is also for Mercy's ROCKIN' Sketch Challenge, MTSC34!

Now, my focal image, which is these AWESOME silhouette flowers from the Act of Kindness set from There She Goes, were NOT stamped with bleach. I tried to...numerous times, on numerous different colors of cardstock, and pretty much just managed to get VERY lightheaded...with no good stamping result!

SO, I stamped these flowers in Whisper White Craft Ink onto Rich Razzleberry cardstock and added TONS of piercing. Each layer in pierced in fact, as well as sponged with more delish Rich Razzleberry.

My back panel of Rich Razzleberry was run through the Cuttlebug with the Stylized Flowers Embossing Folder and I then ran a paper towel with bleach on it over the raised image. It changed the color JUST a bit, but it's super pretty in real life!!

The patterned paper is Rich Razzleberry and I stamped my sentiment, "Gratitude Is the Memory Of The Heart" directly onto the dsp with Rich Razzleberry ink.

My focal panel has White Brads from American Crafts in each of the four corners, and I finished off my card with Whisper White Organza Ribbon and Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Ribbon! LOVE it!!

There She Goes is going to have an AWESOME (as usual!!) release at the end of this month! I KNOW I am teasing, but peeks will start on August 26, and you DO NOT want to miss them! They are UBER fabu!!!

I also want to give a shout out to Tina and Scrapbook News & Review, who awarded me with the ROCKIN' Blog Award over on my side bar! Thanks SO much! I am HONORED!!! MWAH!
