Default Bubbles technique

This is not a new technique, but great fun to play with and use as backgrounds. Warning: this technique gets messy! Protect your clothes.

You will need some acrylic paints, dishwashing liquid and glossy paper.

Squirt some acrylic paint into a disposable cup. Next add a squirt of dishwashing liquid then some water. (Experiment with the amounts you use for more intense or subtle color.) Use your straw to mix the ingredients. Blow lots of bubbles so they overflow the cup. You can bring the cardstock down onto the bubbles letting them pop on the cardstock, or you can let the bubbles flow over the cup onto paper. Do NOT inhale bubbles! If desired, create another batch of bubbles with a different color and add to your cardstock.

I stamped directly on the prepared background with chalk ink. Other inks may work well too.

Have fun playing and experimenting! Share your art with us.

Deb,
I just love all your techniques. Sometime the messier the better. I will have time now to try them all.
God Bless

You can also use a paper plate or a pie plate for a larger bubble area.

So glad you had time to try this technique, Wolfeyesone. I hope you had some fun and that your card turns out great! I am looking forward to seeing it!

I haven't done this technique for a while, but your mention of "messy" reminds me of the messy part for me -- my glasses were a mess from the popping bubbles! LOL Fortunately it washed off.
