Marble effect

I had a wonderful time playing with inks and cling film.
It is ages since I did this.
I pulled out some Adirondack pads
Caramel, Denim and Currant.
Cling film and water to spritz.
This was the first with Caramel and Currant.
I spritzed the water onto the cling film and put it on the card and left it to dry

These are with the Caramel and Denim
and I removed the cling film slowly when they were still wet
to get a lovely marble effect.

I used more Caramel on this one and left the Denim patchy but thicker.
But best of all I used up 4 card blanks that have been in my stash
for at least 15 years.  They were a perfect match.

Am sharing this with:

Have a great day.
