Papertrey Ink | Make It Monday #76

This week's challenge is called Double Time Bleach Stamping. I haven't used bleach while stamping in a l-o-n-g time, and I forgot how fun it is! I used PTI's Turning a New Leaf to create a fun background. I accented each leaf with a Little Bitty Bird Addition stamp in New Leaf ink.
 

Here is a close up of the bleached background. It's a little messier than I had anticipated, but the lime/yellow color is really cool in person.

 (All supplies are PTI - Stamps: Turning a New Leaf, Little Bitty Bird Additions, Modern Wood Mats, Tag-Its #3 & #12. Cardstock: New Leaf, Smokey Shadow, White. Ink: New Leaf, Enchanted Evening. Dies: Mat Stack #4, Limitless Layers Circles. Ribbon: New Leaf. Patterned Paper: Enchanted Evening Patterns Pack. Other: Bleach).

I am obsessed with big, loopy bows right now. I am not very good at tying bows, but when are big no one can tell the knot is a mess! And looking at the card tonight, I should have stamped the sentiment in smokey shadow ink to tie it in with the card base. But it's done and I'm not about to take the whole thing apart and start over! 

Have a great night. :-)

What a delightful card! Turning a new leaf is always a good choice, but an exceptional one here. AND the addition of the Little Bitty Bird wing is brilliant.
