I am playing again in Darnell's NBUS Challenge 3 week blog Birthaversary. I am playing this time in NBUS #10 with a never before used stamp set and a cool Bubble Wrap Technique. This is Darnell's 3rd and last week for us to play in her really fun challenges and with a chance to win prizes:-) Darnell..I already own prizes 3, 4 and 5.
I did my technique a little different than Darnell's. I dropped my Alcohol Inks onto the inside of a Padded Envelope, which has smaller bubbles than your normal bubble wrap packing material. I then spritzed my inks with Blending Solution and laid my Yupo Paper over the ink with a piece of paper towel over the Yupo Paper and pressed down with my hands. This was my 1st pull using that technique. I got 3 more pulls with each being lighter than the 1st, that I will use for future cards.
Here is a photo of 3 more backgrounds.....
On my finished card I used my MISTI to stamp my Penny Black brush and bird images using Archival jet black ink over my bubble wrap background. Even with Archival ink you have to be very careful not to smear the ink, which I did..whoops! Time for a bit of surgery. I discovered my SU Baja Breeze CS was a perfect match for the T.H. "Steam" alcohol ink, so I made an angled corner cut and now have a bit of the CS showing, which I like.
I then die cut my CUTplorations "Birthday Word" using the Baja Breeze CS and stamped my SU "Sunshine Sayings" sentiment on scraps of Yupo and attached all with SU Fine Tip Glue pen weighting down with a large acrylic block for a few minutes. I attached my card front to my card base and was done. I really like this card much better IRL. It is shiny and real artsy looking! The bubble wrap circles add a really nice texture.
Thank you again Darnell for all your fun challenges and encouraging us to try new techniques and of course use Never Before Used Schtuff!
My card is for another challenge City Crafter #347 Colour Splash Black & White and Splash of Aqua
