Marbles?



I know I always say that each card I make was so much fun but this techniques was REALLY fun. Ginna K’s challenge at Stamp TV is to use the technique she taught called, “Marble Background.” I didn’t have any re-inkers so I picked some up this weekend. I got a set with 5 or 6 by Posh Rainbow. I used red and green. You put drops of re-inker and marbles in a box and shake to get ink on the marbles. Then you put your card stock in the box and shake. It makes a really cool pattern that kinda looks like paint splatters. It looked like Christmas to me so I made a Christmas card. I mounted it on Pure Luxury red card stock that I got in my Eclectic Summer Kit from Ginna K. Then I stamped the poinsettia flower from the Ginna K set by Melanie Muenchinger called A Year of Flowers on Pure Luxury white card stock and cut it out with my Cricut. I colored it with Copic markers and distressed it with Desert Sand by Memento and added tiny pearls by Kaiser to the center. The “Happy Holidays” is an A Muse stamp. The corner frill is a quickutz die-cut that I cut on my Cuttlebug and glittered with SU Dazzling Diamonds. The little red bead flowers are by Jenni Bowlin. The layout is this weeks Mojo Monday sketch. The challenge at Stamptacular Sunday is ‘Inside Out.’ I used some of the marble paper I made on the inside along with stamping part of the poinsettia.
I thought this would be a very messy technique but it wasn’t and it cleaned up easily with a little stamp cleaner spray. You can learn all about this technique over at Stamp TV.
This card also work for the Cuttlebug Spot challenge #41 which is Christmas in July and to use your Cuttlebug which I did for the corner.
Thanks for visiting and let me know what you think.

I haven't done the marbling technique in a while but it is fun. And you got such great results with your choice of Christmas colors.

Btw.. on my blog you mentioned that you didn't know what Versamom was. That is the user name of the person whose gallery was featured that day on SCS.
