Rolling Marble Background
by Beate Johns
Create a marbled background with reinkers and marbles.
- Plastic box
- Removable adhesive
Add several drops of reinker to a plastic box.
Add several marbles to the plastic box and close the lid.
Shake box sideways until the marbles are inked. The ink drops will be replaced by ink tracks in the box.
Place cardstock into the box (use removable adhesive if desired) and close the lid.
Let marbles roll over the cardstock to create a pattern.
Continue to roll the marbles over the cardstock until you like the look of the background.
Finish your card.
After finishinig one color, clean out your plastic box and repeat the steps with another color of reinkers.
Not just for backgrounds
Stamp an outline image over the background you created and cut out the image.
