Bubble Solution, Ink, and Paper

Hello Everyone,

For today I am seeing lots and lots of dot challenges.. Who? Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, CAS(E) this Sketch, and the Cards and More Challenge blog. So why not.. I thought I would experiment.  Another blog (please let me know if you know it) showcased this fab technique by blowing bubbles with ink! Genius!! And the result was FANTASTIC! Perfect for the CAS(E) challenge. So lets try...

Well it didn't go as planned so I got annoyed and started dribbling the solution on the paper.. I cannot believe how wonderful the color was!! True and they really didn't bleed into each other as much as I thought it would.. I turned out beautifully.. And here it is the bubble solution and ink dribbled on CS!

The circles were place how they were cut. It is hard to see
but the result is supposed to be seamless.

The addition of the white outline of circles leads your
eye down to the sentiment.
Who would have thought bubble solution and ink would
have this result.. Amazing!! I guess it pays sometimes to experiment.

I am sending this card to the following challenges:
CAS(E) this Sketch #129
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: We're Going Dotty
Cards and More Challenge: #135- Dots/points

   Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog  take away

This card was very unexpected.. One thing that surprised me was the 'embossing' effect it had on the paper after it dried. Try it! I promise it will not disappoint!!

The card size is standard A2 white cardstock with a top fold. Then die cut with this die in white and I die cut the colored bubble paper using only the circles not the outline. Spray mounted the white outline die-cut and placed it on the card base. Then filled some of the circles with the bubble solution paper. Added sentiment (retired SU: Word Play) on soft gray CS and heat embossed white..

Okay it is late and I must go to bed for tomorrow is another busy day.. Take care all and thank you so much for stopping by!! And please leave a comment if you'd like. I would enjoy hearing from you.. Take care and have a great night.

All the best,

It's been some time since I've been here, but it's so freezing cold in the study where I have my computer and do my cards, I hardly spend any time here!!! Winter is not my best time of the year for crafting and spending time in Blogland!!!! But I've been missing my friends and making cards so I'm wearing my warmest jacket and sweater and now it's sort of OK, but still a bit chilly!!!! But I want to see what everybody has made. so I'll keep myself warm with cups of coffee, too ...maybe I should have a glass of wine (LOL)!!!!!
I love your 'bubble solution and ink dribbled' effect, Shawna!!! And I love how you've got only the bubbles at the top in colour!!!!! Love that die!!!! A beautiful card!!!
