Just bleach it!

Here's a card made at our Hostess night using the Inspired by Nature set. The set is currently on the Dormant List - but it will be back in the catalog in July! Woo hoo! I love this set!!
We used a So Saffron base, Basic Black mat that we scratched the edges of, and Basic Gray to actually stamp the image on.
To get the bleached image - just pour some fresh bleach onto a paper towel to create your "stamp pad" then "ink" the stamp with the bleach and stamp away!
This is quite a scarry technique if you've never tried it before. But it is so cool! I love how the Basic Gray turned So Saffron! You've got to try your favorite color - they all produce something different!

I don't know if you tried it before you chose the color of your card base, but it is really nice how they match. I absolutely adore this set and think I may have to break down and buy it someday soon!

Love the effect the bleach gives, and I'm so excited that Inspired by Nature is back in the catalogue!

Very nice! I love that it looks distressed -- or kinda "old". Definitely has a classy feeling to it. :)
