Alcohol Ink Marbeling | Get Well Soon with Altenew Lotus

So I've tried marbeling techniques in the past because I really love the look, but I've never been successful until now. The secret was the paper. 

I did the background panel for this card using the shaving cream + alcohol ink method (check youtube) and finally came to realize that you need a paper with good ink absorption, vs a smooth / glossy paper you would traditionally use with alcohol inks. For this one I just did one color, but you can do multiple for a really interesting background as well. 

For my images I stamped and colored using one of the few Chameleon markers I have. I really want to like these markers, I just don't. A lot of extra work and effort, I would rather spend the money on copics, but that is of course a personal preference. 

To finish I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto some vellum, which I wrapped around the card from and adhered onto the back before adding the panel onto a gray a2 sized card base. 


Thank you stopping by today! I hope you'll join me on my crafty journey, find more crafty fun on my Instagram and Facebook Page
