Marbling Papers

Combining several things I am doing this year, I am reading a book called Paper Transformed by Julia Andrus. Lesson one is on marbling so off I went.

Marbling ATCs

I used shaving cream – the old fashioned actual cream type. Then, I put drops of dye re-inkers in the shaving cream. I took plastic forks and “marbled” the ink in and then pressed the cardstock into the design.

As the shaving cream got rather thick, I pressed one piece onto another piece. You can almost see which two are the pairs.

These were done in ATC (Artist Trading Cards) size – 2.5″ by 3.5″. I have a project in mind!

Marbling Doorhangers

The second marbling was also done with a predetermined project in mind.  I used precut door hangers that I have had on hand for years.  They are from Stampin’ Up! and are glossy.  I used shaving cream and dye reinkers again (Stampin’ Up! colors – Marvelous Magenta, Pink Passion – or is it Passion Pink and Pretty in Pink).  I am putting fun
foam hearts around the top where there is no marbling and stamping or decorating, not sure exactly yet, with Valentine items.
