Hi Nelly, you are correct with the different papers. GinaK papers have a higher quality of color pigment and bleach beautifully. I also have discovered other papers just looking "dirty" where bleached or just a faded color. So I think it is the paper, not so much the bleach.

Hi Linda,

I tried the spray "original", I used on "non-Gina K paper. It lightened a bit better than just the bleach, but will have to experiment on other papers. Each is different. Thank you again.

It comes both in spray and gal. Size. I would buy the spray and just pour what you want into cup. Have fun!

Linda, thank you for the great tip. Saves us from buying different ones without luck & having more bleach around than we could ever use!! LOL  Is that in spray bottles?

I used Clorox Cleaner+Bleach original on the Wisteria card stock and it bleaches pure white.

Gina, What brand did you use? Are there brands better than others for this technique?

Comment by Bijoux Ward on July 28, 2015 at 2:50pm

Linda Brown, I did use chlorine bleach, I use non chlorine beach on color clothing & things I don't want bleached but cleaned well. thank you. Any other suggestions?

Nelly and Jacquelyn, note on bleach: there is chlorine bleach and non-chlorine beach. Be sure to use chlorine bleach. Hope that helps.

I had the same problem, the bleach lightened the paper so made a nice effect with the "tone on tone" look, but did not get white. Any hints?  Thank you. Still love the look & technique. Thank you for showing us. :)

I tried this card and had one problem.  The bleaching turned the purple cardstock into a lighter purple so I made some swatches using different colored papers and the bleach.  Most turned only lighter colors, but some turned a yellow/green color.  I went to the store and purchased new bleach and tried again.  I can't get the card stock to turn white.  I am using your GKD paper which I love above any other, and can't understand why this isn't bleaching.  I have done the bleaching process before, but don't remember if I did it with the embossing.  Could this have anything to do with the process not working.
