Welcome to another Simple Stamping Techniques International Blog Hop! This month we are sharing the fun Stampin’ Blends Marbling Technique.
Stampin’ Blends Marbling
I stumbled across this Stampin’ Blends Marbling Technique in December and knew I had to share it with you and the Stamping Techniques Design Team!
I did a trial run with my technique club and they loved it. It was fun to do and every piece came out different even with the same colours and the same tools.
Now depending on the colour you choose you’ll find that the colours dont always ‘appear’ as you think they will. Using darker colours doesnt mean your piece will have them prominently up front. My ‘arty’ daughter explained that when you use a colour with a ‘heavy’ pigment they tend to sink to the background when doing a technique like this. The lighter colours will always come to the top/front of the the piece. This explains while even when using dark blue or red the pinks and yellows seemed to come out more.
Here’s a few of my pieces I made with varying colours …
As you can see you can get lots of different pieces with the same colours and technique. Here’s my card I’m sharing with you today …
I didn’t want to take too much from my background piece so I simply added a sentiment and flower frame using the Forever Lovely Bundle. The colours for my flower frame were taken to match my background.
Blends Marbling How To …
- You will need Stampin Blends Markers, Gloss Cardstock, ziplock bag, Isocol or Rubbing Alcohol and Paper Towels.
- Using your markers scribble or colour over your ziplock bag.
- Spritz with Isocol/Rubbing Alcohol
- Lay Gloss Cardstock piece down on spritzed ziplock bag and smoosh all over the back to ensure your piece is totally covered.
- Remove cardstock from bag and set aside to dry – wipe bag over with Paper Towels & clean up.
- Once your piece is dry you can use is at a background or to die cut for a pretty frame or with your favourite die cut flowers, borders and images.
