#574 – Handmade Marble Paper

Hello! This time, I a pretty much CAS card. I guess the card itself looks pretty bland, but I am still pretty happy with it – since I made that wonderful marble background myself! Yup, I did!! 😀


I don’t have special papers for alcohol inks. Instead I used the paper that comes with stamp sets – so that’s another feather in the cap – recycled element! Of course, the paper is a bit shiny, not one that directly absorbs the ink, so I was able to work with it plenty well. 🙂


My reference for this pretty technique are these videos (here and here) which were about nail decoration – yes nails! But since they used alcohol inks themselves, with such absolutely amazing effects, I was compelled to do the same – and thankfully, they turned out just right!

Supplies used:
Adirondack Eggplant alcohol ink and Blending solution
Winnie & Walter In a Word Hello Cutaway
My Favorite Things Hip Clips
