PTI-Make It Monday #76: Double-Time Bleach Stamping

Hello, and thank you for your visit today.  (This is actually my second post today.)

When I saw Nichole's PTI-Make It Monday #76  video, it reminded me of how much fun it was, when I was first introduced to the bleaching technique several years ago.  So I knew I HAD to enter this challenge.  I love the way "kraft" cardstock changes to a yellowish color when bleached.  The kraft circle and the bottom kraft strip were stamped with bleach and red ink.  All stamps and dies used are by Papertrey Ink.

Stamps:  (PTI)-On The Farm
Dies:  (PTI)-Tag Sale #5, On The Farm
Ink:  (Distress Inks)-Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain; VersaMark; (HA)-Hero Hues-Punch Chalk Ink
Paper:  (PTI)-Rustic Cream, Kraft; (SU)-Soft Suede
Other:  Clear Embossing Powder, Circle Punch, Jute Twine, Foam Adhesive, Bleach

Your visit and comments are greatly appreciated.
