Hi Everyone! I have had so much fun blowing bubbles! I have been like a kid. I saw this technique on face book and I just had to try it for some backgrounds for cards.
small plastic or paper cups
Dawn liquid detergent
food coloring or reinkers ( I used 4 colors of reinkers )
white glossy and/or matte card stock
craft mat for the mess
paper towel for the mess
Put about 2 drops of Dawn in the cups. Gently pour 1/3 of the cup with water. Add about 12 drops of reinkers to each cup.
Stir the colors with the straws and blow gently into the straw to form lots of bubbles. Make sure you do not suck in on the straw! LOL! OR don't do this - I was not looking and started to blow from the end that had been in the soapy water!
Take the card stock and tap it over the bubbles. Do not squish it down on top of the cup. I did this several times with each color I wanted to use on the card. I liked how it turned out better on the glossy card stock. With the matte, the water soaks in and does not leave as a clear of a design as the glossy. But they both look good depending on how you want to use it. I used a piece of glossy on my card above.
Here is how it looks on matte card stock.
Here is the look on glossy.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have as much fun playing as I did! Have a great day!
