Bubble Wrap Flowers

I enjoyed making some more bubble wrap paper using a brayer and a rainbow pad. This time I used small bubble wrap and after it was inked up I laid the paper over the top of it to capture the colors. They were a more pastel design and would have worked great for a baby card but instead I used two new die sets I recently acquired for the first time and created a bouquet of flowers with them.


Since these die sets had their virgin use today they will qualify for Darnell's NBUS Challenge as well. I am so glad she does this as it spurs me to get out more things and work with them.


I know the main photo does not show the bubble wrap designs very well so I have done a couple of close ups of the dies used for the flowers.



Cheery Lynn Designs Dies used:
XL-24 Nested Flower Pots
B777 Floral Bouquet Kit

I am also entering this in the Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #59-Anything Goes.

I think I am coming down with a cold or maybe it is a reaction to the flu shot I got Wednesday. At any rate, I ache and have a few cold symptoms. And, it could be either as the nurse said she was coming down with a cold. I hope whatever it is that it is short lived.

Well, here it is the weekend already. I sure had a good week for the most part so I hope the weekend is a good one too. Thanks for visiting and for your wonderful comments.

God bless,
Verna

  7. I understand how you created such a beautiful diecut pot of flowers, but how did you do the bubble wrap marks? Did you use a whole piece of the bubble wrap over the finished product or did you wad up the bubble wrap and dab it on where you wanted it.

    1. I brayered the ink from the rainbow pad onto the bubble wrap and then I turned it over and pushed it down onto the paper to get the design. You could also just place the paper on top and press it into the wrap. It never occurred to me to wad the wrap up and use it in that manner. That might work too!
