CBCC #26 - Bubble Wrap

When Courtney told us to use bubble wrap for this week's challenge, I thought, "bubble wrap?" What do you do with THAT? I inked it up and stamped it on cardstock, and thought it looked a bit like a honeycomb. So why not make a bee card?

For this card I used cocoa ink on the bubble wrap and stamped it on Summer Sun cardstock. I had originally tried Chocolate Chip ink, and it was just too dark and icky. The cocoa ink is less harsh.

The bees on here are from a Christmas gift from my mom. She gave me Bee-Mail made by Renaissance by Design. It is a super cute stamp set! I love it - thanks, Mom!

We have a new Challenge Chick joining us. Welcome Risa Malieta West to our group! Check out all the Chicks' blogs to see what they have created with bubble wrap this week:
