Tuesday Tips or Techniques-Bubble Wrap Stamping!

Today I am sharing a unique background that you can create for a card. You know those packing materials called bubble wrap? My kids used to love jumping on them to make the popping sounds. That was a long time ago and now my granddaughter loves to do the same thing. Well here is a new use for them:

See those tiny dots in the center?

Those were made using a piece of bubble wrap! I cut a piece of bubble wrap 5" x 6" then turned it over with the bubbles facing upward and rubbed my ink pad over the bumps. Turn it over and press in place on your cardstock piece. You can press with your fingers or you can use a "Brayer". I like the way the bubbles turn out with different shapes and shading. It's almost like a snowflake....not one is the same!
