Marbling Technique

Good evening to you all, I seem to have a little bit more time now that the Summer Hols are over, the site is not so busy now, which means that I actually get some free time in the evenings.  I only have 11 weeks left before our current contract finishes.  We are hoping to go home and catch up with family for a few weeks before heading off to Spain for Christmas.

I have created my card using a new technique to me Marbling with shaving foam.

Please excuse the awful photo but I don't have very good lighting at the moment.

I followed the tutorial link on this months CAS mix up card challenge blog.
I squirted shaving foam into a baking tray added some drops of, Rich Razzleberry, Night of  Navy and Marina mist ink refills from Stampin Up. This is a piece from one of the first sheets of card that I placed onto the foam, some of the other pieces are more subtle in colour.
To create my card, I cut a piece of my marble card, and then die cut the HELLO from the panel and also out of funky foam, before layering it all back into the negative space.
I stamped friend in Rich Razzleberry ink added some silver sequins and all done.

I have used Stamping + Marbling + Die cuts
