Marbleized Tie n Dye Technique.

Hello everybody, 

I found some time this afternoon to play using a techniques tutorial shown at Stamp-a Faire at Papertrey Ink. T his tutorial is called Marbleized Tie n Dye.
Well, I went through my husband's vanity and did not find shaving cream! Found only shaving gel! What a disaster? I am not going to buy a shaving cream. So I decided to try using the gel. To my surprise, it did work. I loved the marble effect. So cool and looked like modern art. Wow!
 I made a set of cards using the marbleized panels

 I have used Sweet Blush and Aqua Mist reinkers to get my marbleized effect.

 I love the silhouette Life and Larger than Life images on the marbleized background.

This panel here was my trial panel and I love the subtle effect on it. Great technique. I have to try using with other colour combinations. After all I will have to buy shaving cream lol!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Have a great weekend!

The pink and green combination turned out great! I love how you stamped the flowers over the tie dye pattern. Looks awesome!
