Sharing a Bubble Background & Embossing ATC (Artist Trading Card) from the Maremi’s Creative Cafe #52cafecards Challenge. I joined the Creative Cafe just over a month ago and have loved very minute I’ve been in the Facebook group. There are so many talented people in this group. Go and join now, you won’t be disappointed.
Marta has begun a challenge. #52CafeCards. A weekly challenge where a word prompt is given based on the alphabet that we are allowed to interpret into an Artist Trading Card.
Since this weeks prompt is Bubbles I decided to try a technique I saw on the internet a while back. Fill a bowl with water and dish soap. Blow bubbles and then spritz with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists. Rake your paper, or in this case the ATC through the bubbles to pick up the color. Simple enough.
Items used for Bubble Background & Embossing ATC:
Diamonds Stamp set
Sterling Embossing Powder
Detail Ink Raven
Aubergine Chalk Ink
Tattered Angles Glimmer Mist, Party Pink, Pop Rocks, Turquoise Blue
White card stock
Purple card stock cut to 2.5 in. x 3.5 in.
teaspoon of liquid dish soap
Long Straw – I used a bendy straw so that I knew which end to put in the water vs my mouth.
Here is a video of how I made the ATC.
My suggestions, Use a large bowl and use one teaspoon or more of liquid dish soap. Blow lots of bubbles. Heck if you have a kid, have them blow the bubbles for you. lol The more bubbles the better. When the spray hits the bubbles they tend to pop. So the more layers of bubbles you have the better.
Fun technique. I’ll try this again. I may even hook up a small air pump from a fish tank to make the bubbles for me! Wish I would have thought of that before my video! lol
Hope this gave you another great idea of how to make a fun ATC. Using Bubble Background & Embossing ATC sure looks good to me!
