Rolled Marble background Technique

Each month at card club we learn a new or revisit a past stampin technique.

Last month it was the rolled marble technique..........it is created by using marbles and rolling them over your cardstock to create a unique background each time.

Take an old clean take-away tub and place a few drops of re-inker into the bottom.

Next gently roll over your marbles I tend to use about 3 or 4.  If you feel the reinker is too dark just mop up some of the excess with kitchen towl.

Now lay your cardstock into the tub and roll the marbles gently over it until you are happy with the result.

Allow a few minutes for the ink to dry and then finish your card.

My design was simple and the sentiment could be changed for perhaps a sympathy one or thinking of you.  A change in colours would also make my design more feminine
