Default TLC592, Paper Marbling {06/27/2016}

Hello Stamping Friends and welcome to another TLC Challenge.

Today I am filling in for Sabrina who is away. So happy to be back with you again.


So, today the challenge is called:

TLC592; Paper Marbling


I have been playing with paper marbling for awhile now and it is really fun. For my samples, I used RangerAlcohol inks and Copic Re-Inkers.


So here we go....

This technique only works with alcohol based inks so you will need:

Alcohol Inks or Copic Re-inkers.


If you don't have any of the above, you may want to try nail polish or acrylic paint mixed with rubbing alcohol. (I read that someone had success using these)

I used a heavy white cardstock but you can also use watercolor paper.


Step 1- Fill a shallow pan or container with water.


Step 2- Drip an alcohol-based ink over the water surface. I added about 5 drops or so.


Step 3- You can place your paper directly down into the water or submerge it at one end and drag it on through the inky water. You will achieve different looking effects on your paper depending on what method you use.


Step 4- Set aside to dry.


When dry use your marbled paper to

- die cut a shape

- use as a background

- stamp over the top

- paper piece on your card

- make a frame for a stamped piece




I created 2 cards using this technique.


Marbled in Red (used Copic Re-Inkers)


Marbled in Purple (used Ranger Alcohol ink)


Remember to add TLC592 to your keyword line when uploading your card so it will show up in the gallery.



TLC592 GALLERY can be found HERE.

I've never tried this before! Sounds like fun is about to happen! Did you use regular cardstock or watercolor paper?

I used a heavy, white cs but try using watercolour paper...would most likely work well too!

Perhaps I cheated, but I used a piece of hand done marbling that I had made with a friend awhile back....just been saving it. We used the traditional technique with combs, etc. Fun, but messy. Great challenge and your method seems a LOT simpler, Karen. Thanks.

Well, Karen...I tried, I really did! I used Copic re-inkers, did 2 with 110 lb. card and 2 with watercolor paper. All 4 came out so washed out and drab. I don't know what I did wrong! Even kept adding more drops of ink with each try, fairly dark colors, too. Anyway, they're too blah to use, so I guess I'm nust marbling challenged : (
Thanks so much for providing us with the challenge today, though - you are much appreciated!

Not sure if someone has mentioned this yet... a cotton ball, dipped in rubbing alcohol and then having just a dot of SU! Classic Reinkers will do the same trick. Just dob the inked cotton ball on a piece of glossy white card stock and voila! Marbled Paper! Love this technique, Karen!!!

I Got a few minutes this morning to try the marbled bg before heading off to work - WOW so quick and easy! since the only Alcohol inks I own are deep Rose, Eggplant & Lettuce, it worked well to combine with tues. color challenge. Here's my Marbled bg card:

Karen, thank you for your technique challenge; it was great. I wasn't successful using the tutorial so I had to use another method to achieve a marbled look. Hopefully my card will qualify for the TLC. Here is my card!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who tossed some into the trash! I used spectrum noir reinkers and when I dropped it into the water it got globby (is that a word?) Tried three or four times and then called uncle! LOL

Hi Ya'll. I enjoyed learning this new technique. You may not see much of the marbling in the bg but it's there. I marbled it with metallic gold. I hope you like it ! TFL
