More Marbling

Making two more cards with the marbling technique at CAS Mix Up September challenge.

On the first one I put the ARTplorations Bubbles stencil on the inked shaving cream, then laid down the watercolor paper.  The circles are faintly there.  Inks were Heavenly Blue and Garden Green
re-inkers (now retired CTMH colors).   The sentiment is Thoughtful Florals, from Verve. Since I had used a stitched panel die (Simon Says Stamp), a double stitch for each side of the green sentiment piece, from Die-Namics, My Favorite Things, seemed to connect the pieces. All on a Garden Green card base.

The second card used Olive and Goldrush re-inkers.  The stitched leaves are Lawn Fawn dies. I used the Atlantic Hearts Sketch  for this week for the design.  The green panel had edges 'roughed' up and sponged. Looking in my 'brown' bin I found a short piece of heavy twine, and unraveled it for the leaf cluster.  Put a stitched panel and a few more leaves inside.



  1. TFS both your marbles background cards Dina. The beauty of this technique is that you get multiple backgounds for future projects :-) I can see your stencil in your 1st card and love your Fall design in your 2nd card.
    So pleased you were able to join us at CAS Mix Up. Hugs, nancy

  2. Wonderful results from your marbling! The second card is such a lovely autumn card with those fabulous colours and die cuts. Thanks for joining us at CAS Mix Up.

  3. Two very different marbled looks, Dena! I love how you've used the stencil with the first one! (I didn't have good luck with that technique.) And your Fall colors have swirled together beautifully! So perfect with the leaves and twine! Thanks so much for sharing with us again at CAS Mix Up!

  4. Great job with the marbled backgrounds Dena. Looks like you are having lots of fun with this technique! :) Two more beautiful cards! I tried using a stencil with this technique but didn't have great success ... mine turned out really faint, but it could be that I didn't have enough ink added for colour. Your circle stencil worked great. Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up.
