Darnell's NBUS #10

I had fun the other day trying out a new technique suggested by Darnell for the optional twist on her NBUS #10 challenge.  She asked us to create with bubble wrap and she made some wonderful backgrounds so I just had to try it.

I started by sprinkling some Brushos onto the bubble wrap, spraying it and then pressing my paper onto it.  I ended up with all these panels and the one I turned into my card.  The two laying down are on glossy paper, the first and last ones I did.
And now for my card.
It took me a while to decide how to use the panel but I made it a backdrop to my NBUS lotus flower from Altenew painted with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink.  I cut a white frame with SSS stitched rectangles and popped it up on foam over the Smoke card base and dotted panel.  The sentiment from PS is heat embossed on more Smoke and angled in the corner.  Now I just have to figure out how to use the rest of the panels.

Thanks for dropping by.  Maybe you'd like to try bubble wrap painting.

  2. What a fun idea to use Brushos on bubble wrap. I wanted to try the technique too, but couldn't find any bubble wrap, so I used a faux-bubble-wrap stamp instead. Of course, I'm up to my neck in bubble wrap, until I need some. I'll have to remember to try Brushos now, for this colorful background.

  3. Great job with this technique, Bobby. The colours you've used are so pretty together. And the purple flower with gray leaf look lovely with the background. xx

  8. Umpteen apologies for being MIA; my scheduled 7 days of marking diploma exams transformed into 12 (talk about blurry eyes!) which saw me falling behind in leaving real comments. Hopefully, you received the thought-bubbles of oohing and ahhing on those I missed! Catch up begins here and oh my stars! E for Excellent (evidently I'm still in marking mode *grin*) with the bubble wrap technique! Swooning over your card...the background is perfect for your pretty lotus! WOW!
    Hugs~c

  9. Stunning results, Bobby! I love that you used Brushos! That never occurred to me, but it worked a treat! The one you used made a delicious background for your sweet matching bloom and stitched frame!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10 and joining in the optional theme!! Hugs, Darnell
