Celebrating Kindness Blog Hop and Marble Background Technique


Welcome everyone to the Celebrate Kindness Blog Hop! If you are coming from Sonja Kerkhoffs blog, then you’re in the right place! We are celebrating 10k YouTube followers for Julia Alderman with Just One More Card.

I’ve created a card using a fun technique that I learned from Wendy Vecchi. It involves Simon Says Stamp inks and a bit of plain ol’ rubbing alcohol!

I used Tim Holtz Specialty Stamping Paper because it work really well with the alcohol and doesn’t warp. I built up my colors one at a time until I hade a nice mix.
