Hello again! Welcome back for another weekly class catch-up. This week, we played with the Marble technique, using shaving cream. You will need cheap shaving cream/foam (I used Woolworths Home Brand – about $3 a can), and various ink refills. Have you tried this technique before? It’s quite fun, but a little bit messy! Have a look at this tutorial by Stampin’ Up! to try it yourself :)

For the first card, we used Lemon Lime Twist as the card base. On a piece of Whisper White which we marbled with this technique, we used Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Daffodil Delight inks. The card was dried off and stamped with a retired stamp set called Happy Birthday Everyone, using Basic Gray Archival ink.

On these squares, we adhered butterflies cut from a piece of Whisper White using Bold Butterfly Framelits. The cardstock had been marbled with Berry Burst, Bermuda Bay, and Pink Pirouette inks. The centre butterfly has a banner of Berry Burst card, and Silver Metallic Thread underneath it.

This was layered with a piece of thick Whisper White that had been heat embossed with a sentiment from Sheltering Tree, using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and had a large butterfly cut from it. Underneath this was a piece of Whisper White card, which had been marbled with Pink Pirouette and Crisp Canteloupe ink. Crisp Canteloupe is a retired In Color, so if you don’t have it; you could use Calypso Coral, just sparingly so it doesn’t overpower the softness of this card.
