Another Bauble

Yep, still chipping away at those Christmas cards ... I made this one in a bit of a playing session.  I used distress inks and glamour mists to create the inked background, and then stamped the swirly sentiment onto it.  The I took a text stamp and brushed it with bleach and stamped it over the sentiment (which I masked).  Finally I cut the result out using a Spellbinders ornament die, and cut a larger one for a mat.  The cardstock is SU and I scored the teal one using my score board.  Finally a bit of organza ribbon and a bow.

I got the idea of stamping with bleach, aving had another go at colouring images stamped onto Kraft with bleach ... not sure how good bleach is for the rubber though!
