Ink Marbling Technique in 3 Steps

Have you ever tried your hand at marbling paper? Well I love the look of marbling, and although I am not that good at it when it comes to making my own, I dabble and experiment with different looks. So when I started playing with the new All-Purpose Inks I did a lot of experimentation, and this fake marbling effect is one of the stunning effects that came about in an afternoon of experiments.

Here’s how I create the look

  • Step 1

    Use a sheet of white cardstock and mist it heavily with water. Remember to work on a covered surface or a craft sheet.

  • Step 2

    Use 2 colours of All-Purpose inks and one colour at a time drop the inks onto the wet cardstock using your ink dropper.

  • Step 3

    Spread out your colours by dropping the different colours in between each other. Once you are done adding your colours, mist the colour with some more water and then leave it to dry thoroughly.

Use the coloured panel as a background for a card. I added a chipboard element, die-cut word and some other elements to tie the design together. The dimensional butterfly adds a nice soft touch to the card. I love how the bright colours work well together with the pastel shades of the chipboard.
