Marbled Sea

It's Friday and I'm excited because I'm enjoying a weekend away for a bit of a fall color tour.  Could be why my post for the Friday Mashup is late!  I totally forgot to get it ready since I was so focused on packing and leaving! lol  This week's mashup from Lynda is a fun one!  I love the sketch and this technique is new to me too.  Well, kind of new...I've seen it before, just never tried it.  It's a good thing we have these challenges because it pushes me to do techniques that I normally wouldn't bother to try.  Here's the mashup for challenge #180...

Create a project with "the Sketch". 
Create a project with the "Marble Rolling Technique".  Link to technique HERE.
or Mash it Up! and create a "Project using the Marble Rolling Technique & Sketch". 

I decided I was going to use The Open Sea set with this sketch, and have white card stock for my background.  I thought the blue marbling on the white kind of looked like a map.  However when I tried to put all of my white circles on the white card stock it just didn't look very good.  So I decided to do blue and white marbling on blue card stock.  I love how it turned out too!

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup HERE to see all the other great cards made using this technique and sketch, and play along too if you have time.  We'd love to see what you create!

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

Supplies used: 
 Marbles (in my case beads since I don't have any marbles! lol)
small plastic container

  1. This card is AWESOME, Sara!! I love how the marbling looks on the navy cardstock. And this is my all time favorite stamp set!!

    1. Thanks, Jenny! The Open Sea is definitely my favorite masculine set. :)

  2. This is such a great, masculine card! I love navy and crumb cake/kraft together. And thanks for the kind comment on my blog! I visit yours regularly, even though I don't always comment - your cards are wonderful!

  3. Another great way to use this awesome set- thanks for sharing it with everyone. This is a really cool card with the marbling on the dark background.


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
