Who would think playing with marbles as ‘Adults’ could be soooo much fun! lol. Very addictive too lol.
In my July classes I had my ladies laughing so much, which, when I described what we were going to do, their faces said ‘you what? yeah right!’ lol was hilarious in itself!
We used the ‘Marbles Technique’ to make a background on both cards. Then we used the Stamp Set, Sprinkles of Life and Tree Builder Punch to create two lovely cards.
So here are the cards we made using marbles, an empty stamp set box, card and some ink refill.
Thanks to Julie Davison for the Inspiration to make the Rainbow Cloud Card. Julie Davison Pinterest
The marbling technique is a great way to get different backgrounds, depending on the colour Ink Refills you use and how you roll the marbles around. I also made my swaps for the Pinkies Training I went to yesterday; a bookmark with a flower on it. I used the Angle Topped Punch and the Pansy Punch. I made a flower using the Bouquet Bigz L Die and big shot and I also used the new Cotton Paper which feels really weird but gave a great result. In fact in the class on Saturday, a Bumble bee came into the Craft room and it thought the flower was real, flew straight over to it to try and collect the pollen! Bless. One of the ladies rescued it and showed it the real flowers lol. Here’s a couple of pictures of my bookmark, and the flower the bumble bee mistook for a real one lol and another card I showed the ladies as an example of a different way to use the marbling technique.
At the Pinkies Quarterly Training at Croughton yesterday, I did an Inspiration table showcasing how to do the ‘Marbling Technique’ to make different backgrounds for cards etc. It was a great day at the Training, meeting fellow Pinkies Demonstrators, exchanging swaps, getting inspiration from them and spending the day crafting! It went way too quickly and I only managed to make two of the 4 projects we were given to make throughout the day!
