Awash with Bubbles

The challenge at Just Add Ink is to add a technique that you haven't tried before. 
 
A few days ago while cleaning I found a pile of bubble wrap and remembered reading that someone had made a background with bubble wrap - I didn't even bother to read how they did it because I thought it would be rather messy. 
 
Yes, it was a bit messy, but I am quite happy with the result. 
 
Because the background was quite strong I wanted something simple for the focus and SU Awash with Flowers has now seen ink for the very first time.
 
All ingredients are SU
Stamps:  Awash with Flowers
Card:  Midnight Muse; Whisper White
Ink:  Midnight Muse; Gumball Green
Tools:  Stamp-a-ma-jig;  Gumball Green ribbon;  Round Tab punch
 
 
So for me this card has two new techniques and I will be trying both of them again very soon.

What a fabulous technique and a gorgeous card Mary! I love the multi tone bubbles and Awash looks lovely used that way. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink.

This looks great, Mary! A little inky mess when crafting never hurt anyone. :) You've made a beautiful card. Thanks for playing along with us at Just Add Ink this week.

This is so cool - I have to try it too now. I've been think about that lately too - like what things around my house could I use in my card making - this is a great example. I love the way you have embellished it to with your ribbon / sentiment. Chantell JAI

What a great way to make an interesting background, it makes you look around at things in your craft room (house) with a different eye now to see what else you could use like this. Thanks for joining in with our challenge at Just Add Ink and trying something new.
