Bubble Magic

Are you ready for some magic? I mean some awesome bubble, stamping magic!!! When I saw this technique on Dawn Olchefsky's blog I knew I had to try it. It was so awesome and you get the best results with it! I couldn't be happier with this technique. So I tried it with some pinks and decided to get a jump start on my Valentine's Day cards.

Doesn't that just look awesome!?! It's so easy too, it's basically just bubbles (Logan has like a gallon of them), pour them in a small container, add some reinker and blow with a straw. When the bubbles reach the top of the bowl, gently press your cardstock into it and ta-da. The coolest looking background ever! Dawn has a great video on her blog so I encourage you to check that out for more details on how to do this technique.
For my card, I used 2 colors. The first color I used was Pretty in Pink and in addition to the reinkers in there I put a few drops of Shimmer Paint in there too. So that made the background oh soo soooo sparkly (which you know I love). Then once the Pretty in Pink layer dried I went over it with Regal Rose bubbles. So pretty!! I love it!!!

Once the whole thing was dry I used my Color Spritzer tool and my Crumb Cake marker. I just love the whole look of this card!!
