Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I want to share with you a simple and fun marble background technique. With just a few basic supplies you can make fabulous backgrounds for your next project!
For this technique you just need the following supplies; marbles, cardstock, ink refills and a container with a lid. That’s it!!
The first card that I created using the Marble technique features the Crafting Forever stamp set. This stamp set is being retired and will not be in the new catalogue being released in June.
For this card I chose a primary colour scheme … Crushed Curry, Pacific Point and Calypso Coral. I love the way the colours all came together!
Next I decided to go with a softer feel using the Daisy Lane stamp set.
This is one of my favourite stamp sets from the current catalogue … I love daisies! There are coordinating punches for both of the daisy images which makes creating with this set super easy!
For this background I chose to use Seaside Spray, Flirty Flamingo and Rococo Rose. Together they made the perfect background for the card I was creating.
This inking technique is so much fun, I could have kept creating all day!!
You’ll be creating beautiful backgrounds in a multiple of colours in no time at all!
