PaperCrafts Magazine, Challenge #9-Use Bleach

Hi everyone! Have you guys seen THIS mag yet? I am seriously loving the creativity boost it's inspiring! Challenge #9 was to use bleach. I made a little "stamp pad" out of paper towels and a bit of bleach, and came up with this vintage-y looking card. Just as a bit of warning...the bleach continues to lighten the card stock for quite a while after the image first appears. My bicycle was a perfect Creamy Caramel color (retired SU! CS) when I made the card, but by the time I photographed it the next day, it had lightened to a Crumb Cake color.

If you're inspired to make a card using today's challenge, I'd love to see it! Please link it below.

Ingredients: (All SU! unless otherwise noted)
Early Espresso CS and Baker's Twine, Creamy Caramel CS (retired), Button Latte Buttons, Feeling Sentimental Stamp Set, Soft Suede Classic Ink, Bleach from laundry room :o) and Doily from my crafty stash

PaperCrafts Magazine, Challenge #8-Use a Yard of Ribbon

Hi there friends! I have to say, I surprised myself and used way more than a yard of ribbon on this card! At first I thought it would never happen, but after I had that yummy Espresso Scalloped Tulle Ribbon down, I knew I needed to add some Pretty in Pink Stitched Grosgrain to make a sweet little baby card! Hope you enjoy! (and I hope someone I know has a baby girl soon so I can send this card! ;o)

Crumb Cake CS, Pink Pirouette CS, Pretty In Pink Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Early Espresso Classic Ink,  3 1/2" Tulle Ribbon and Bakers Twine, Linen Thread, Tiny Tags Stamp Set, Jewelry Punch, Vintage Trinkets, Trinket Crowns, Basic Pearl
