Crafting around the house

I'm crafting like a kid again.
Remember that messy, carefree kind of art?
I've been reminiscing and came up with this card...
 This is for the 
So what's my household product...Dish soap
The kids LoVe making these soap bubble art and it makes such a funky effect.  And it's easy to do, here's how...
1. Mix together in a bowl
2 Tbsp. Dish soap
2 Tbsp. paint
and 1/2 Cup water
(I just eyeballed it, no need to measure.  Just make sure it's not thick and it bubbles.  Also make sure the liquid has enough paint so the color shows)

2. Add a straw and blow

3. Dap your paper onto the bubbles (you want to use heavy cardstock so your paper doesn't rip) let dry and that's it.  It's ready to do what you want to it.
