Marble Inking

Do you remember in art class back in Elementary school when we took a pie tin, black ink from a pen, some paper, and a marble or two and created a work of art? I do and am so happy that we can do that technique again only with updated products and fun stamps. I created this cute card today to use for a Home Gathering I have this weekend and want to thank fellow consultant Margi Gilbertson for the great idea!

I know many of you can remember doing this fun technique back in school, but might want to re-create it now that you're older! So gather the following supplies and you can make your very own "Happy Halloween" marble inking card.
  • 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" White Daisy CS folded in half for card base
  • 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" Sorbet dots paper from "Twitterpated"
  • 3/4"x 4 1/4" Olive Cardstock
  • 2 1/2" x 3 1/2 " White Daisy CS
  • 2 3/4" x 3 3/4" Olive CS
  • C1374 Spellbound Stamps
  • C1324 Spooky Smiles stamps
  • Black Bitty Brads
  • Olive Big Brads
  • Black Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Sorbet Ink Pad
  • Olive Ink pad
  • Black Ink Pad
  • Paper piercer & mat
  • Edge Distresser
  • White Delta Ceramcoat paint
  • 2-3 marbles
  • Plastic container
  • Tweezers
Attach your black piece of cardstock to the bottom of plastic container with temporary adhesive. Mix a small amount of white Ceremcoat paint in small container with water. Drop the marbles in with the paint and use tweezers to pick them up and place in container with Black Cardstock. Tilt the container back and forth until Black cardstock is marbled and has web-like appearance. Remove cardstock from container and set-aside to dry.

Stamp pumpkin with Sorbet, pumpkin face, fence, tree, and bat with Black and Stem & Vine with Olive on White Daisy cardstock. Edge distress the Olive cardstock pieces, and ink distress the Sorbet Dots paper with Black ink. Attach stamped White Daisy piece to Olive CS and attach 2 black bitty brads for eyes, and 1 large Olive brad through Black ribbon. Finish assembling card, and stamp "Happy Halloween" on front of the card. Send the card to someone who needs some encouragement to their day or keep it for yourself. ENJOY!
