Make Your Own Marbelized Paper
I used this background paper to make this greeting card:
Here's how I made them:
-First, make your own applicator by velcro-ing (is there such a word?)a piece of white felt material to a rubber stamp wood mount (the ones we have left over AFTER we convert our mounted stamps to the quick & easy unmounted Creative Cling system)
-Using alcohol inks: dot 2-3 colors of alcohol ink on your applicator. Pat this on your White Glossy Cardstock, using up & down motions. Then dot 2-4 dots of gold from your
Krylon Leafing Pens on top of that. The gold leafing will begin to separate and you'll begin to see that "marbelized," veining look. Again, pat gently, up and down, sideways til you get the desired look.
-Using TAC Palette reinkers with regular alcohol.
Take your applicator and dab alcohol on it first, then dot 2-3 reinkers on top ofthis. Pat this on your glossy cardstock. Then add your dots of gold leafing and do same as above. It's that easy!! You can look at these pictures to help you out:
