Technique Tuesday - Marbelling

I'm back with another Technique for you all. If you haven't tried this one before, its a lot of fun, and the kids can even get involved!
Plastic Container (I recycled the tray from some meat I bought from the supermarket)
Card Stock

Drop a couple of ink drops onto a clean tray. Roll your marbles through them, getting as much ink on the marbles as possible.

Wipe the excess ink off the tray with a tissue, then get rollin'!

Once you are happy with the effect, you can add more ink or you can leave it as is.

This is the result after repeating the steps with other colours. You can then decorate as you like!

Here is the end result!

CS: Really Rust, Old Olive, Summer Sun & Whisper White
Inks: Old Olive IP, Really Rust, Old Olive and Summer Sun Ink Refills
Stamps: Always
Other: Slit Punch, Piercer, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Marbles

Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial, its so easy-peasy!
