Fun & Fast Notes on Bubble Technique Background

Happy Memorial Day! Since I had posted my Red, White and Blue card at the end of last week (check it out , further down) I decided to post this card done with the bubbles technique. For today's post I am going to call it "Bubbles bursting in air", sorry I just couldn't resist! This technique is done using dish washing liquid, water, straw, and your favorite reinker! There are many ways to do this technique and all with a different result. I just mix the dish liquid and water and reinker together, then dip my straw in it then blow gently over my cardstock, both glossy and Whisper White will work. Just like blowing bubbles when you were a child. Repeat until satisfied with your background. Finish your card with your stamped and colored focal point. Hope you try it and let me know what you created!

What proportions of liquids do you use.  I want to have the right mixture without wasting things.

That is so cool, I am going to have to give this technique a try.  Bet my son would even want to stamp with me doing this, lol!

I do not have measurements. I just used a plastic dish (from store bought dip). filled 1/2 full of water and added dish liquid until you can blow bubbles. Next I add the reinker color until I have the color I like. After stiring just dip in straw, and blow your bubbles onto the cardstock. Another way is to blow a bunch of bubbles in the bowl and place your cardstock on top to get the impression. I like to blow the bubbles directly to the paper and allow some to get the burst effect. Hope this helps!
