When I'm not feeling particularly creative, I create backgrounds, die cut a bunch of flowers or stamp lots of sentiments.  This past week I did bubble blowing backgrounds.  I used some watercolor (1 part), Dawn soap (1 part) and about 3 parts water in a plastic cup.  If you google "bubble painting" you'll find many videos and recipes for this technique.  I also used heavy weight cardstock cut into 4.25"x5.5" pieces.  I die cut one of my pieces for the flower and another for the leaves for my TicTacToe Challenge card for this week.

After adding the flowers, enamel dots and sentiment to the embossed background, I sprayed it all with some sparkle mist.
Hope you'll join our challenge this week with this fun board Joanne created for us.  I went diagonally from left to right with die cut, flowers and enamel dots.



  1. Betty... I think I told you how much I love this magnolia... but seeing it up close the bit of sparkle is fabulous!

  2. WOW - stunning. Love the embossed background and that gorgeous flower. Love the bubble background technique - must remember to do some more.

  3. Love the bubbled layered flower atop the embossed background, Betty - gorgeous!!

  4. So pretty Betty - I love the background embossed detail, it highlights your pink bloom beautifully.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
