Reactive Ink Marbled Background

Mar 22, 2022 Pocono Pam

Hola everyone! Pocono Pam here with a card using the Girl with Kite cover plate die. When designing the card, I wanted to step away from my usual blended ink background and created marbled paper. The technique is fun and easy-to-do. 

I started by spraying a layer of shaving foam into a 8" x 8" disposable aluminum baking pan. (Shaving foam not cream works best for this technique.) I then added several drops of Creamsicle Reactive Inker on top of the foam. The technique will work well with Hero Arts Liquid Watercolors as well. 

Next, I placed a skewer into the foam making zig-zag and swirl motions forming the marbled effect. I then I carefully pressed a 5.5" x 7.75" piece of Dove White cardstock into the pan of shaving foam.

To continue, I gently lifted the cardstock out of the foam, set it on dish towel and scraped the excess off with a plastic ruler to reveal the pretty paper! Once dried, I cut the marbled paper to 4.25" x 5.5" and adhered it to an A2 side folding card base

I then die cut Girl with Kite in Pitch Black cardstock and adhered it to the marbled panel. Using the Message Strips Stamps & Cut XL set, I heat embossed "I Miss You" in white onto black cardstock.  

To finish, I cut out the sentiment with one of the frame dies from the set and placed it on the card with foam circles for dimension. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
