So Happy For You, Growing Green
Pumpkin Pie meets Old Olive in this one - I stamped on Whisper White and used an aqua painter to lightly paint the fern image. I stamped the floral images in Versamark and clear embossed on scrap pieces of Pumpkin Pie and used a paintbrush to pick up household bleach (undiluted) and "paint" the images - just fascinating watching it change colour and go alot lighter. You can speed up the drying process with a heat tool if you wish. Don't forget to thoroughly wash your paint brush after using bleach!
The sentiment is from the current Sale-a-bration set "So Happy for You". I finished off the card with rhinestones for some added "bling"!
For the bottom edge detail, I aligned the edge of my card stock with the top of the contour of the curly label punch and punched to create the effect as shown above.
