This weeks CreatedByCourtneyChallenge #3 is to do the rolling marbles technique.
I wanted to do something just a wee bit different. So I took a couple pics while I was making the card and will do a kind of mini tutorial for you!

Instead of using ink, I decided to use liquid glue.
I put drops of glue and my marbles(that I stole from Adam) in a stamp case and used temporary adhesive to stick my cardstock to the lid.

Then I shook the heck out of it. The glue makes the marbles kind of stick to the paper. Ummm, yeah. Because that's what glue is for. So shake it hard.

Then I took my paper out and added some glitter.

And here is what my card looks like before I add anything else.

And here is the finished card!
So, whatcha think?

Be sure to check out what the other Challenge Chicks have created. The links are on my sidebar, over there------------------>
If you make a card be sure to go link it to Courtneys post for a chance to win. And if you upload it to SCS, please use keyword "CBCC03"

Let me know if you have any questions.
Have a great day!

Pin It!

I can't believe the glue made the marbles stick to the paper. You should write to the company. ;)

Very cool idea though! That whole technique is a little too messy for my tastes, but I love your spooky little card!
