Simply combine some white acrylic paint with any colour of Stampin' Up ink using a re-inker, add a little dish soap and some water and you're all set to begin blowing bubbles. I combined my paint and ink in an empty accessories container (e.g. brads or buttons, etc.) because I didn't want to use a lot and I need something fairly shallow. I held my Whisper White card stock over top of the container while I blew bubbles using a drinking straw and as they popped they coloured the paper. So cool!

Then I turned to one of my favourite sketch challenge blogs, Try Stampin' On Tuesday, for some sketch inspiration:

I really like how the banners alternate and wanted to capture that with my "Bubble Background"
I LOVE the look that the "bubbles" have on the paper. I used Stampin' Up's Island Indigo and Real Red to tint my acrylic paint. It created a lovely, soft background for my "Language of Love" stamps.
