With just one week to go before the launch of our new stunning Annual Catalogue, I have been looking at the stamps that will soon be retiring. One set I will miss is the Marbled background stamp set. What an amazing stamp this is with all its light and shade, and stunning swirls!
I decided to apply different coloured inks to the back of the stamp using my beloved sponge daubers (couldn’t be without those things 😂) in mint macaron, tranquil tide, highland heather, gorgeous grape rich razzleberry and blackberry bliss. I then stamped the multicolored swirls onto a piece of whisper white cardstock and used a versamark pen to follow some of the swirls before applying silver embossing powder to the versamarked areas and heat embossing them.
Finally, I die cut several hearts from the stamped cardstock to achieve both of the heart embellishments used on these cards. I love the unusual effects you can achieve this way and the fact that both hearts come from the same stamped image!
I’ve barely scraped the surface of this pretty technique, and am sure there are so many more effects you can achieve. Give it a try yourself xx
*UPDATE – due to its popularity, the CLEAR Marbled Background Stamp has now sold out! I have therefore updated the link below to the WOOD version which is currently still available but showing as low inventory**
