Hello 'Beautiful'

Hello and Welcome to today's post.
It's my turn to Host for our Trend Week at
Just Us Girls
I chose Bleach as it is a technique I haven't tried before
and I know it has been around for an age. 
I'm afraid my card didn't photograph too well.
I think the metallic shimmer made it tricky.
The beautiful Lily Stamp and Sentiment
I used here are from STAMPlorations
 Smile and Hello Coffee
I heat embossed my flower with
Lindy's Pumpkin Fiesta
and then worked on bleaching.
When that was dry I added colour with
some metallic paints. This was cut from
a Spellbinder die with SU Groovy Guava
card stock - same as my base.
I popped that onto some metallic paper
attaching some ribbon to the side.
Sentiment was inked with
SU Calypso Coral. Finished with pearls.

Hope you can pop over and see what our
November Guest Claire and my Team Mates
created for your pleasure and get time
to get out some bleach from the laundry
and play with us this week.
Look forward to seeing you in our Gallery.

Thanks for dropping in and leaving
such kind comments.

I think I have only tried this technique once and was not very successful, you have rocked it Ina! Thanks yet again for the inspiration!

Ina, your 'bleached' lilies are lovely and the additional of metallic paint adds a pretty sheen! Beautiful card!

Very cool colors on your card with the bleach technique - love that stamp and the dies that you used - they all go together perfectly!!!
