Stampin’ Blends Marbling Basics
- Use some removable tape to secure a card front size piece of ard to your work surface. This is your template (14.9 cm x 10.5 cm or 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″)
- Secure a ziplock bag over your template
- Use a variety of Stampin’ Blends to randomly colour on top of the bag. Use your template piece of card as a guide.
- Spritz the bag well with rubbing alcohol or Isocol until the ink appears to be wet, and droplets of the liquid are visible. The edges of the colours will start to blend.
- Place your A4 Glossy White Cardstock ut to 14.9 m x 10.5 m or 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, glossy sie own onto the wet ink. Press the card stock onto the ink for a few seconds then lift up to see your background
- Use the background as is or repeat this step to add layers of colour or fill in spaces which didn’t colour.
Tip: Try not to work in an area which is directly affected by wind or an overhead fan as it will dry the ink very quickly
Tip: Mist the inked area with Isocol again to revive the colours as needed
