Marbled backgrounds #1

Hello Everyone,

It is Monday again, I cannot believe that time flies that fast. Yesterday I had a little time to try something new to me, marbling with distress ink re-inkers and shaving foam. I saw the technique a while ago on Stamp TV, where Gina K introduced this with such ease and stunning result, that I had it on my list to try. If you are interested in the technique, check out her video (I love everything she does).

So I marbled some backgrounds (actually 8) using the colours to match the MFT Colour Challenge and I used one which was more or less the 3rd in the row. The more you use the mix of inks and foam, the more the colours mix. After drying I cut it with a stitched rectangle from MFT Blueprints 25. Then I cut a white tag (Paper Smooches) and blue heat embossed the sentiment (MFT) on the upper part of it.

I die cut some of the smaller stitched flowers (my most favourite MFT die nowadays) from scraps of matching coloured cardstocks and glued them flat on the tag. I foam mounted it on the background and added some blue and pink gemstones in the middle of the flowers.

I wanted to keep it simple for the background to show. I hope you like it as much as I do. I enjoyed getting ink on my fingertips! I felt I am a real artist.

I will upload this to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Handmade flowers and to the MFT Colour Challenge.

In another post I will show you another card I made with the same supplies.

Hope to see you back soon,
