Marbled Background

Good Evening Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A few weeks ago I had a good clear out of my craft room and got rid of a load of rubbish.  In one of my boxes I found a load of background I had created a while ago using marble inks, amongst other backgrounds and shapes that I had cut out.  Don't you just love it when you have a happy find like this?

Here is a card I have made using one of the marbled backgrounds.  It will fit nicely into a couple of challenges too.


Recipe

1. A5 white scalloped card which I have matted and layered my own marbled background cut out with Spellbinder Grande Oval die.
2. The frame has been cut out with glitter card
3. The butterflies are from Sheena Douglass Paint Fusion stamp set which I have coloured with Copics and added Detail Sparkle Lilac from Imagination Crafts
4. I have added a strip of Washi tape and flowers with pearl centres.  I have also added card candi to the two corners.



Thank you for stopping Today
Hugs xxxxx
