Flashback Friday Rolling Around

Looking back over my posts this week I sure was fussy cutting maniac!   I actually don't mind cutting and find it relaxing so it is all good.  Today we are going Plane and Simple.  No, it is not a spelling error but the  the name of the set I used and it also describes the  technique we are going to use.

Have you guessed the technique?  It is the rolling marble.  This is so much fun to do and really simple.

I used a small Stampin'Up! container (I think this one was for a single stamp).  You can use anything as long as it closes securely.  Drop a few drops of reinker into the container and drop some marbles in.  As you might have guessed I have lost my marbles(I know they are around here somewher but where?) and had to use some beads. You want to shake the container so the marbles pick up the ink. 

Put a piece of cardstock in a container and drop the marbles in the case and shake! 


Fun huh?  You get a totally random design and it makes a great background.  If you have more marbles you can add another color or 2.  Now you know the basics you can experiment and I know you will come up with some cool ideas.  Remember to share them with me!

Stamps: Plane and Simple and Happy Greetings(Summer mini)
Ink:  Early Espresso ink and reinker
Paper: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
Big Shot: Square Lattice TIEF
Punches: Decorative Label punch
Extras: Early Espresso grosgrain ribbon, Game Spinner Hands, marbles, empty stamp cases

Have a wonderful weekend!  Hope you get on a roll and get your fingers and paper inky!

Love the marble rolling technique. Haven't done it for a long time. Thanks for bringing it back to me. Your airplane card looks so awesome with the marble rolling background! Love how it turned out. What a fantastic guy card.
