Winnie & Walter - The Gossip Column: Marble

I  am back again today ... but I couldn't let the day go by without a card for the current Gossip Column Challenge #6 - Marble! at Winnie & Walter!
 
AND since today I'm playing with alcohol inks [new] and doing a never-before-technique [marbling] and it IS National Inspire your Heart with ART day!! - how is a girl to resist entering her card in Darnell's NBUS Challenge #10?



Ready for my card[s]? 

For a little better view of that gorgeous marbling: a close-up!

and if one is good, two is better, right?


Winnie & Walter have only the best words ... don't they? 

Here is another favorite of mine:  Thanks!

I don't think I've ever seen that technique before (or saw it so long ago that I've forgotten), but it looks AMAZING on your cards, Michele!

What has gotten into you, Michele Ferguson? Alcohol ink? Marbling? Plus all the Copic coloring you've been doing. You're light years ahead of me, mf.

Dang girl! Dang shang-a-lang! These are so...rich. Your dark marbling looks like some designer chocolate, especially on that first card. Gorgeous. And the black base on your second card really makes those colors pop! Very cool. Oh yes, my friend, very cool. Love them! Bev

Nora N. said...

HOW DID YOU DO THIS? I love the pretty marbling and the deep, jewel colors that you were able to get. I have marbled paper before and have not been able to get them with this beautiful color. Your cards are STUNNING!!

Barb Ghig said...

Marvelous marbling, my dear!!! I love your choice of colors, and how you paired those beautiful hearts and sentiments! I really LOVE your black embossed card base on the 2nd card too, Michele...so unexpected, yet perfect!
You nailed it, my friend...You really did :)

Umm, yes, two is definitely better in this case. Fabulous marbling, Michele! So vibrant!

These hearts are swoon-worthy! I just love the richness of alcohol inks and really need to play with mine more. I've got a long weekend this weekend, so tomorrow might be the day :)

Marianne said...

Love your strong and vibrant colours and your red sentiment adds a lot of impact. Aren't Taheerah's challenges fun. I had a blast creating cards for Taheerah and Darnell's challenges and expect to make a few more marbled cards this month.

Darnell said...

With your talent, two is always better, Michele! I have to say the tones and depth you achieved with your first design made it seem like that heart was actually beating! (Am I up too late?!) I find it mesmerizing!! Thank you so much for playing in my NBUS Challenge #10 and joining in the optional "pick a National Day" theme! Hugs, Darnell

Jeanne said...

Gorgeous work! Wow. Great colors and wonderful texture. You are awesome!

Gramma Sarah said...

Super use of AI! These are one of my favorite mediums. Great card design too.

Taheerah said...

Never played with alcohol inks before? Could've fooled me! These are fabulous Michele! Especially love that deep, old heart on the first one! Thanks for spreading The Gossip on w&w's The Gossip Column!
