Default What is Rolling Marbles

There is a darling card in the gallery and they used a technique called rolling marbles as part of it. I'm really new to this stamping thing and not a clue what this means. Anybody care to share. I love this site and there are so many talented people that share there beautiful cards. It's very inspiring.

thanks - Karen

Rolling marbles is take a container ( I use a small stampin' up container) put in a few marbles and a few drops of what ever color reinker you want...roll them around...set your cardstock on top. (For bigger pieces of cs I keep and wash the meat trays you get when you buy your meat). If you want more then color wash up and do another color...hope this helps.

If by chance you don't have re inkers or just what to try it and have them on hand, the acrylic paints work the same way. It leaves a rougher texture which is nice. Wash items right away when you finish rolling. Make sure they are acid free if using on scrapbooking pages.

I do mine in a clear top pencil box found at a dollar store. That way I don't have to empty out my stamps each time I want to use the technique.

Also a tiny piece of two sided tape will hold it in place, mine shifted once and the edge didn't get covered.

I like StampinAFwifes idea for a meat tray for bigger pieces of c/s.

I save the metal tins that you sometimes receive CD's in to try out AOL for 45 days free. They work great for rolling marbles in. I also use those with polyshrink because when you heat the polyshrink it curls up and sticks to most anything else and the tin reflects back the heat, so it takes a shorter time to shrink. And you can peel it off of the tin easily.
