Well, being the non-packrat that I am, I have no bubble wrap to be found! I wanted to participate in the optional portion so I chose that part to use bubbles. I remembered a workshop I took one year at a Scrapbook Expo where we used Distress Spray Stain, water and Dawn dish soap in a shallow cup with a straw. You blow bubbles until they are piled up and then put your watercolor paper on them.
As you can tell from these photos, I was just having too much fun! I made several backgrounds and got 3 of them turned into cards so far. (Yes, I'm so slow at deciding how to put a card together!)
Just a bit of water w/a couple drops of Dawn. The bubbles look clear at the top but the color is there!
|You can see from the top one that I used Candied Apple & Blueprint Sketch. The one on the right is where I dumped the leftovers from both colors together--it made kind of a grape color.|
Here are the cards I made. I've listed my NBUS in the captions.
|NBUS: hearts, flowers, sentiment from My Monthly Hero January 2017 kit|
|NBUS jar, flowers, bow from My Monthly Hero January 2017 kit|
|NBUS Spellbinders Die of the Month January (DOM-JAN17).|
I'll also be entering two of these cards into the Flickr group Love!--Handmade Cards, ATCs & Other Crafts group's February challenge: Hearts & Flowers.
Thanks so much for taking a look and leaving a comment! :)
