So let's jump right in!
Here are the cards that I made using this technique...

And here is a faux marbling card. My daughter wanted to make a card too, but I had put everything away and was waterpainting. So we got some shaving cream and added a couple of sprinkles of the paints and Viola, she has her pretty pastel blue background.

Now this was a little challenging for me because I used the wrong shaving cream but I think it worked out great in the end. Check out the video if you want to see a little more step by step for the Paper Marbling tech.
Here is the entire line up:

You are heading to JODIE 

Please join us the third Saturday of each month for a new technique. We love comments and sharing on social media!

  1. Sandy you created some beautiful cards. I really love the black and white marbleizing with the pink contrast. Great job and thank you so much for hopping with us. Looking forward to next month :-)

  2. Love the black and white marble look and how it looks with a strong color like the bright pink.

  3. Great color combo. I think the polka dots set off the marbled paper beautifully.

  4. I watched your video and learned a lot. I love all of the cards. Amazing what you can do with a little shaving cream and just one basic black color of reinker. Thanks so much for sharing.
