Blowing Bubbles Card
While blog surfing the other week, I stumbled onto Catherine Pooler's Blog and found a different technique I had not tried. Here's the directions:
Take some kids bubbles…..yes those bubbles that kids play with outside. Pour some of the bubbles in a container and add 15 -20 drops of ink color. Do as many colors as you would like….I did 3 colors, each a separate container. Stir to mix ink with a straw. NEXT - blow bubbles using the straw and place a piece of white cardstock on top, pressing into bubbles. Change colors as desired, blotting on a paper towel occasionally. Place a paper towel on ironing board (another use for it!!!!) then place cardstock faces down and press with a warm iron, moving iron around (so you don't burn it) do this til the cardstock is dry. Stamp open image in black stazon on the cardstock.
Here is the one I did, even using the same stamp set that she used....
