Fresh Cuts Marble Technique


I used Baja Breeze ink on Going Gray cardstock for the marble technique. Use a plastic stamp case and tape cardstock to lid. Add a couple drops of re-inker to bottom and drop in a couple of marbles and roll them around. Turn this container upside down and roll around on your cardstock. I'm sure if you don't have marbles you could used large beads or ball bearings. 5/16" Neutrals brads and Basic Gray taffeta ribbon to embellish.
Walk in The Park paper along with Basic Gray & Black cardstock. Highlighted areas of Fresh Cuts image with Pretty In Pink and Blush Blossom markers.
Also for our weekly Three Amigas challenge to make a gray monochromatic card.
