Beautiful cards! Wonderfully easy technique. Thank you Gina! And thank you to SSS too!
All the cards are beautiful, but I especially like the one with the gauze stamp. Did you stamp that on blue paper?
Wow! Beautiful cards!!!
Love the look of the cards! It’s been ages since I last used the bleaching technique. Thanks for the reminder of how great it looks!
Beautiful cards Gina! I think I may grab some bleach and try this out. Thanks for sharing this technique with us.
What an interesting technique and I love all of the cards!! We don’t use liquid bleach, but a different form of it, so I guess maybe I’ll be going out and buying a very small bottle of liquid bleach, LOL!! This looks really fun and the combinations are really endless! Thanks for sharing .
This technique rocks! I really love your cards—so unique and creative. I will be trying this out over the weekend for sure. Thanks for the excellent video tutorial!
How fun. Another cool technique that I’ll have to try. Thanks for the fun video and inspiration.
Always inspiring Gina K. Amazing cards!
