My challenge sample card uses Distress ink as well as Distress Stains to create my background. I then used a round sponge blender pad and regular bleach to remove color from my background panel. I felt my circles of removed color looked so much like bubbles, that I actually used just a bit of distress ink and a paint brush to add just a bit of color back into edges of the "bubbles" to give then a bit more 3d look.
I then added Swirl Turtle and the Life is Beautiful sentiment in India Ink once the panel was completely dry.
