Quick and Easy Projects: Create a Marble Effect on Paper

by LeeAnn McKinney

Greetings crafty friends! I was watching YouTube and came across this shaving cream ink marbling technique from GinaK and just had to try it. This is a quick, fun card style to make, you can use any re-inkers you have in your stash and mix/match with plain colors and beautiful metallic tones as I did here. As I say in the video, the Golden Glitz really makes this card for me. This technique can also be used on all sorts of paper crafting projects.

Since it is the fall season, I focus on a warm color palette for an Autumn leaves look and stamped the sentiment with a rich brown to compliment the yellow, orange, and gold colors. This card design is a perfect way to spend an afternoon crafting and coming up with multiple card designs with a marble look. The shaving cream can be used to make several card panels until you run out of the medium.

Time: 30 minutes
