FM180 Sketch and Marble Rolling Technique

Hello and welcome to another week at The Friday Mashup! Lynda has an exciting new sketch and technique mashup for this week. 

I have never tried the marble rolling technique but it was lots of fun!

I made a slight change to the technique because I didn't have a reinker for the gold. Instead I inked up my marbles with the ink pad and then rolled the marbles as instructed in the video The Friday Mashup linked to. The sketch was a fantastic starting point for my card. In the end my card doesn't look much like the sketch but I promise you the sketch really did guide my card.

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

To make the gold stars I simply embossed a piece of very vanilla with gold embossing power and punched out the stars.

Stampset: Wonderous Wreath, Endless Wishes
Paper: Very Vanilla, Garden Green, Cherry Cobbler
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Garden Green, Gold Encore
Punches: Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Banner
Bigshot: Wonderous Wreath Framelits
Tools: Heat Tool
Accessories: Gold Embossing Powder
