Bleached Saffron Tree

Hello!!! Well, this one was fun because I tried something I've only tried one other time and was unsuccessful. I stamped with bleach! I stamped the Stamp Camp tree with bleach and then stamped one of the SU! Itty Bitty Background stamps with more bleach. I stamped the tree again with Basic Gray ink and then I sponged all around with vanilla and Basic Gray. After that, I sprayed Pearl Glimmer Mist. When it was dry I stamped a little bit more with the background stamp using the gray ink. The color challenge this week was to use the color after stamping with bleach as your second color. The tree is somewhere between vanilla and saffron so I went with So Saffron! The BasicGrey designer paper in the background was a perfect match, I sponged the edges too! The ribbon and hardware is all SU!. I used a Martha border punch at the bottom. For my layout, I used this week's Midnight Madness sketch. If you haven't checked out Midnight Madness, what are you waiting for! I love these sketches every Tuesday!
