Bubble Wrap and NBUS

It's the last day for Darnell's NBUS 10 challenge.


There is an optional challenge to use bubble wrap in some way.  Here's what I came up with:


I dropped two colours of alcohol inks and the gold mixative from my NBUS Pinata set onto bubble wrap and spritzed with blending solution.  Then I laid mixed media cs on top and pressed down lightly with an acrylic block.

I got a really nice section of bubbles that just fit nicely inside my new Peek-a-Boo window die (another NBUS).  There was a blank space at the bottom of the bubble wrap section, just right for me to stamp "thanks" in gold.

I popped the piece up on fun foam and added three co-ordinating sequins.

Thanks, Darnell, for the great idea - I'll definitely play with bubble wrap some more.






Supplies:
Stamps - SU thanks
Ink - Delicata Golden Glitz ink pad; Pinata alcohol inks (Fuschia, Baja Blue, and Gold)
Paper - white and mixed media cs
Size - A2
Accessories - MFT rectangle peek-a-boo window die, Lil Inkers stitched rectangle die, fun foam, sequins, bubble wrap
