Wacky Marbles Technique – even the name is fun! This technique uses products that you probably already own.
See the step by step instructions below.
For this card, I used Whisper White shimmer paint first and then added a second coat of Rose Red re-inker. You can also use only re-inkers for a different look. Please let me know if you have any questions on this technique.
Using a stamp storage case or a plastic container, add several marbles to the case.
Attach a ¼ sheet of cardstock to the lid of storage case using adhesive. Snap lid closed tightly. Roll the marbles in the shimmer paint or ink until well coated.
Flip the case upside down and roll the inked marbles onto your cardstock. Use only one colour at a time to prevent muddy ink. You will get about 15 card fronts from 6 drops of ink.
The samples below are Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint on
Regal Rose and Whisper White cardstock. Subtle but very pretty.
These next samples are Frost White Shimmer Paint with Rose Red re-inkers on the same cardstocks.
Don’t think it, ink it!
