Today's challenge was something I had never done and was intrigued by it. Since a lot of my paper stash is PTI, I chose to make a swatch book using those papers and stamping each one with the ALWAYS heart. I cut 3 1/2" x 5" swatches, stamped the image with bleach, put on a paper color label, paper hole reinforcement(on the backside). I made a decorative cover and back and put it all on a ring. I can add new cardstock samples as I make them. I also included some paper samples where the bleach had little or no effect...so I won't waste time trying this technique with those papers in the future.
This could be done with any paper you have, but be sure to label the paper so you can duplicate the effect!

Fine minds, and all that... I did the same thing, only I used the curly label punch to make my swatches, and used a small shamrock stamp of unknown origin with the bleach. Good call, and thanks for playing!
