Hosting the Hero Arts Flickr Group Scramble

My turn to be the hostess for the HA Flickr group Scramble.  The rules are to make a card & post it within 90 minutes following the theme & using at least 1 Hero Arts stamp. I chose to require the use of an item not intended for paper crafting.  Thread, paperclips, staples don't count--too commonly used. I made 2 samples for inspiration.  The first one uses a piece of the gold netting wrapped around last year's Thanksgiving turkey.  The watercolor panel is randomly stamped with leaves from HA Real Leaves using Kaleidacolor Autumn Leaves rainbow pad.  The leaves were overstamped in Delicata Golden Glitz & I added splotches of Distress Ink Tarnished Brass using a waterbrush. I hand cut a double tag for the sentiment which is from HA Tree set.
The second card uses bleach to stamp HA Silhouette Grass.  It's an easy technique (make a "stamp pad" by pouring some bleach onto a folded paper towel in a pie tin or something similar, rinse bleach off rubber stamp immediately) & the results are different depending on what paper you use.  You can't tell what it's going to look like until it's dry, which happens quickly. Simple card with an embossed sentiment from HA Thinking of You Messages, ribbon & a dry embossed card front.  
Hope everyone has fun & that some will actually send their card as there's an extra little prize drawing for those who do by 10/4/14.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
Edited to add: I'm entering the stamping with bleach card at SSS Wed.

  6. The bleach technique is super cool! Does it damage your stamps at all?

  7. Stunning card with the bleach technique, Greta! Do you mean that I need to stamp it onto the bleach stamp pad? Does it not destroy the stamp?
