The Resurrection

This Easter, I’ve decided to resurrect an old technique I haven’t used for years – marbled backgrounds using Marvy Metallic Markers. I’m not sure if they even make these markers anymore.

I sprayed water onto glossy card, added several colours of markers , more water and swirled them together. When dry, I stamped and embossed the eggs (Serendipity) and die cut the bird ( Marianne – I cut off the branch). I’m sure the bird is wondering where those massive eggs came from! The background paper is by Crafty Individuals.

I’d like to enter this for these challenges:
