Pear Pizzazz, Always Artichoke, Old Olive

Check out what the rest of the DESIGN TEAM has done
and come play along HERE

There are various ways to do image bleaching......
here's what I did

1. Make a bleach pad by placing folded paper towel on a salad size flat plate.
2. Pour bleach directly onto paper towels away from other items probably in
    your laundry area ( my sheets sitting on the dryer somehow found a couple
    of dribbles as I moved them to get other stuff out of the dryer....arghhhh).
3. Place the fumes aside as you cut your card stock.
4. Cut the color panels
    2 -Pear Pizzazz 3 3/4" x 1/2"
    2 -Always Artichoke 3 3/4" x 1"
    1 -Old Olive 3 3/4" x 1 3/4"
5. Adhere the panels side by side on a piece of white copy paper.
6. Ink up the Magnificent Maple stamp lightly with clear versamark ink to 
    protect the stamp and then onto the bleach pad.
7. Turn your stamp as you place images on ALL 3 colors making sure you 
    stamp off the edge also.
8. Let dry and watch the color being pulled from each card stock color.
9. When dry trim away the copy paper and Punch with the 3/16" Corner Edge.

10. Make a sentiment panel
      Whisper White 2 1/4" x 3/4"       So Saffron  2 1/2" x 1"
11. Stamp the "hello there" sentiment from the HAPPY DAY stamp set in
      Always Artichoke ink. ( available in French and German also).
12. Pop up the sentiment with dimensionals and place the whole faux
      color chip on a Whisper White card base.

You really must give it a GO, it's fun to see how each color of card stock
can come up with a variety of bleached colors.
