Marbled Background

To create this look, you need very few things! A couple of your favorite paint colors, a touch of water, an acrylic block, some saran wrap and a paint brush!

Step 1) On a non stick surface put a pea sized drop of paint, in at least two colors of your choice. Add about half the amount of water as you have paint, and mix.

Step 2) Wrap an acrylic block loosely with saran wrap. Wrinkles are good! With a paintbrush add your paint randomly.

Step 3) Stamp multiple times on a piece of smooth cardstock.

Step 4) Stamp your image over the desired part of your pattern.

Step 5) Cut and create your card! I used the same technique with a lighter paint color (Pink Highlights) on the background of my card to give it a little shimmer!

Shimmer shot! Woo woo!
