Cards from Friends

This card might take you back a few you remember this stamp set?  I do!  I can't remember the name of it, but love it!   I also love the technique used on this card.  Can you guess how she made the leaves on the background paper?  Let me give you a few hints.  It goes on clear, but then turns white.  It's a little smelly and people often use it as a cleaning product.  Have you figured it out?  It's bleach!  Just create an "ink pad" by placing a paper towel on a plate and add a little bleach.  The stamp is then "inked" up with he bleach before stamping to the paper.  Thanks Elsie for reminding me of this great technique!

I received this great card in the mail today from a family friend.   I love the way she used the folded up doily to create the central element.  I don't have this die......but I might "need" to get it now!
