Darnell is celebrating her 5th blogaversary with 3 NBUS challenges, and for her 10th NBUS challenge, she gave us the option of doing stamping with bubble wrap. I took her direction along with some inspiration from my friend Mary Anne and came up with this card.
I opened 3 new bottles of Distress reinkers (twisted citron, mermaid lagoon, wilted violet - my NBUS) and added drops randomly on a piece of bubble wrap. Next I added a few spun sugar, tumbled glass and dried marigold distress ink droplets and then smooshed the cardstock into the bubble wrap. I waited
patiently impatiently for it to dry and finally hit it with my heat gun to hurry it along which created little puddles here and there.
I tried it first on some glossy cardstock and the heat gun turned that piece into one incredible blob/mess/disaster that cannot possibly be used for any card! LOL I'm too impatient to allow anything to dry overnight :)
I decided I was going to use the Tuesday Morning Sketch challenge #388 to create a card, and this is the card that resulted.
I used MB Vivienne and Darla butterfly dies, sponging the white cardstock with coordinating inks before cutting the top portion. The plum ribbon is from PTI and the IO die-cut buttons were cut with royal purple cardstock that matches the card base. I inked some snippets of white cardstock with marigold, citron and tumbled glass, weaving those tiny strips through the buttons to look like thread. The sentiment is from SU! teeny tiny wishes stamped in Concord Crush ink.
Thanks for spending a few minutes of your day here today, I always enjoy your company :) Go and have yourself a wonderful day and be kind to others!
