I bubbled! I was lucky enough to win a prize from Lee Murphy and it came yesterday. One of the gifts was wrapped in bubble wrap and I immediately thought of Darnell's challenge using bubble wrap. So I got out my alcohol inks and my new Lawn Fawn octopi stamp and got busy. I mixed three colors of AI on my CK glass mat and smooshed the bubble wrap in it, then put it down on white cardstock to make the background. I thought bubbles would be a good b/g for the octopus. The sentiment is stamped on a Simon Says die strip. The c/s and ink is SU. I am entering this is in http://www.djkardkreations.com/2017/01/nbus-challenge-10.html.  Be kind to one another.

Liz said...

Brilliant card, Brenda! You've done a great job using the bubble wrap for Darnell's challenge. Super sentiment too. I got as far as making a background pattern with the inked bubble wrap, but then all inspiration for what to do with it left me. xx

This is super cute. The bubble wrap is a perfect choice for your background with that cute little octopus. Nicely done!

I really like the bubble wrap background. The textures and colors are so cool with the octopus.

Brenda said...

What a nice background you got from the bubble wrap Brenda! You are a step ahead of me as I haven't done the bubble wrap thing yet and time is almost out! I still plan to try it even if I don't get it in before the deadline today. Love how yours turned out though and I love the octopus and saying. Hugs, Brenda

Inspired designing with perfect supply arrival! This is so cute, and the bubbles are super cool with that little critter. The blue shades look just very seaworthy too! (Brenda L. sent me the cardinal pin.) TFS & Hugs.

Well, of course, this is THE perfect use for blue bubbles made with bubble wrap! Way to go, Brenda! That octopus is so adorable and makes me smile!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10 and joining in the optional theme! (The plumbers are on their way as we speak! They came out Wednesday and ran the snake down through the vent on the roof. Didn't last long; now the front yard will be dug up, but hopefully not the driveway! At least with all the rain we've been getting, the soil isn't rock hard like it has been in the drought.) Hugs, Darnell
