CAS-Mix it Up Challenge: REMINDER!

CAS Mix Up Card Challenge


This is my Reminder for this AWESOME
Monthly Challenge!!

I am very excited to guest for a wonderful design team and challenge:

Now I have been moving more towards mixed media, and this challenge is a real wonderful excursion for the CAS people, and non alike, 
to get tons of ideas on how to add some interest, texture and other elements, yet still keep a clean and simple design!!

I actually bought a marbling set some time ago.. and wouldn't you know I had a need for it!

(if you want to see my NEW 1st debut stamp set - go here!) 
and been guesting too!  
And it is here:  The Monkey Surprise Set!

 Hope that you LOVE!

I used the same MARBLING supplies as I did with my Initial card below!

For the marbling, I used this marbling kit.  
I dropped some drops in clean water in a large square plastic container.  I strongly suggest NOT to squeeze.  These bottles will bubble up when squeezed and the ink will keep dripping all over!..  Keep layering droplets of color..the water will look muddy, but it is marbling.
I tried several types of paper and for me, photo paper really worked the best.  
(TIP: Photo paper works AWESOME with stenciling)
I occasionally print photos, so I always have some glossy kodak or other photo paper on hand.  I always see it super cheap at thrift stores too and grab it.. It is especially made to grip ink and keep crisp vivid color.
I really suggest playing with it sometime..
I dipped the paper in and this lovely marbling effect remained!

I hoped that with all the DT inspiration 
and the videos, 
that you may try any number of marbling techniques and join in the fun!
