I liked this set right away when I first saw the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Mini. I like using sets that allow me to use several different techniques. What’s the fun if everything you stamp looks the same?
So this is the second card designed for a swap using this set. (You’ll see the first one at camp — and perhaps on the blog after camp.) Here I used bleach to stamp the leafy panel. Using bleach has its drawbacks (it stinks and you’re apt to get some on your clothes), but the promise of unexpected results always lures me back. I was surprised to see the yellow revealed when bleaching Dusty Durango. Brighter than More Mustard, it was just the right spark of color.
