Rolling Marbles

This background of this card was made using the rolling marbles technique. I can't seem to find the tutorial on this one, but here are the basics.
Take a clear plastic stamp case and add a few drops of reinker to the inside, the lighter color first. I used soft sky to begin with. Put in a few marbles and roll them around to coat them, then place in your cardstock and roll away. Take them out, wipe the case clean, and add some drops of a darker reinker, (here I used blue bayou), and procede to roll away again on your cardstock.
This was a fun technique to try, and I can't wait to show it to my stamping friends!
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Whisper White
Stamps: A Little Bit of Happiness
Ink: Basic Black, SU Markers
Acc: River Rock Ribbon, Hodgepodge Hardware, Rub-ons
Happy Stamping!
