Bubble Wrap Backgrounds


A couple of blog posts back, I mentioned that I am currently up to my ears in packing boxes and bubble wrap! I should be spending my time packing but of course the creative bug hits and you end up getting distracted onto doing something crafty. Here is what I ended up doing for an hour or so...



I've wrapped a piece of bubble wrap around an acrylic block and inked over it with a brayer. This is the new one I found on Ebay, rather than the much better Fiskars one which disappeared in my garage sale but it does the job.



Then stamping onto a piece of card, you get a lovely bubbly effect. The photo doesn't really do it justice but it is really nice. You get a textured effect on the dots themselves. I've mounted this on a piece of green paper with a stamped image.


The image wasn't the best but as I can't get to all my lovely rubber stamps, it was the best contemporary one I had to hand. Ignoring the image, the point is that plain old bubblewrap can create a really lovely background effect for your stamped projects!
