On one of our Coach Group Boards the other day one of the Coaches was telling how she took the bubble wrap and used it to make background images. So being curious and loving unique backgrounds, of course I had to see what I could create with bubble wrap, some card stock, and a few ink pads.
I took an 8 1/2" x 4 5 1/2" piece of Whip Cream Card Stock, 4 small pieces of bubble wrap (cut to size with scissors), Blue Lagoon Ink Pad, Green Olive Ink Pad, Pineapple Smoothie Ink Pad, and Sweet Berry Ink Pad.
I took a small piece of the bubble wrap and laid it flat on top of the ink pad, put a little pressure on it to grab some ink, then lifted off and laid it down in a random pattern on the Whip Cream card stock. You can crumple up the bubble wrap, you can lay it flat, you can use the full piece or as much as you want. Very versatile. I used all 4 colors.
The background red is NOT part of the card. Here's is my finished card piece. I stamped out 2 images Birthday Sketch stamp set (on the retiring list), colored them in with color pencils and then added in Journey Glaze and Journey Sparkle Dust to the frosting area and cherry. Added them to the accent pieces using Journey Foam Squares so that they would sit up from the card.
I wish the photos showed a better view of the sparkle that these have. Depending on what you are going to use this card for, you could put a sentiment on the front or inside. This was a thank you note for one of my wonderful customers.
Have to share one more photo with you ... with (left side) and without (right side) Journey Glaze & Journey Sparkle Dust:
I really feel that the Journey Glaze enhances the color it is going over. It makes it richer and deeper in color. The Journey Sparkle Dust adds the WOW factor too.
