Old Olive Week & Stamping with bleach & Cards for the troops

This weekend I have been working on fall cards and I keep going back to old olive so I decided to make that my color of the week and I will have more samples this week so stay tuned. I finally decided to stamp with bleach recently and I love the way it turned out. I stamped on old olive cardstock with bleach and it turned the stamped image a color close to so saffron. So I made that my coordinating color. You may want to try other colors to see what the bleach does to it. This is very easy to do, I folded a paper towel on a plate and poured household bleach one the paper towel and touched my stamp to it as if it were an ink pad and stamped on cardstock and voila you have a neat new color. Let me know what you come up with.
