Speedy Fox Featured Designer - Bubble Wrap

Good Morning all,

I have been dying to show you all this great tutorial. I saw on another card somewhere but I thought I would try to make it a little bit more easier to make. When I saw this I scoured everywhere to find some bubble wrap so that I could make this card, but no such luck. Then a couple of days later on the freecyle (a site where people give stuff away) low and behold someone was giving away bubble wrap. Whoo Hoo I thought to myself. Not only was she giving away bubble wrap she had this gigantic bag that could supply every scrapper out there to make a card like this. I hope you enjoy my tutorial.

Bubble Wrap


Supplies:
Bubble Wrap
White Acrylic Paint
Brayer
stamps
white or cream colored card stock
Paint trays
acrylic paint in your choice of color
adhesive
black dye ink
coordinating card stock
embellishments (not pictured)
paint brushes
paper trimmer
Step One:
Cut your white or cream colored card stock to the size you want, along with your coordinating card stock.
Step Two:
Start with your darkest shade of pain and brush it onto your white card stock going up and down. do not use a lot of paint. Brush lightly.
Step Three:
Add the next shade of paint using the same technique as step two.
Step Four:
Add your lightest shade of paint using the same technique as in step two and three. Wait to dry.
Step Five:
Take your bubble wrap and attach it to your brayer. If you do not have a brayer you can use an empty toilet paper roll.
Step Six:
Roll your brayer into white acrylic paint. Roll off any excess paint so that it isn't too thick.
Step Seven:
Roll the bubble wrap onto one side of the card stock you just painted.
Step Eight:
Once your white paint is dry now it is time to stamp your image onto it with your black ink.
Step Nine:
Finish your card to your liking.


I hope you enjoyed my tutorial, it can also be found on SpeedyTV here.   This is a really cool technique that is easy for anyone to try. I hope it was helpful. Thanks for stopping and commenting. I hope to see you again soon. 

Thanks
