Technique Time

I know its a day late. I forgot I had to watch my cousins last night. But its better late then never :) This technique is easy and its pretty much the same technique you use when you do the Marble background Technique.

This is what you need:
A empty SU container
3 re-inkers (light, medium, dark)
White Cardstock (cut a little smaller then container lid)
6 Beans

Step 1: Take your 1st reinker color and drop between 5-6 drops into bottom of container. Repeat process until you have use all 3 of your reinkers.

Step 2: Drop your beans into container, close lid and shake the container. Once you have covered your beans with color take adhesive (small amount) and stick your white cardstock on the lid of container. Close lid

Step 3: Now turn your container over and shake the container so the beans are bouncing, rolling onto your cardstock. Once you are satisfied with the color coverage on the cardstock stop shaking and remove your cardstock.

Step 4: Finish your card. You can either use it for flowers like I did or you can make it a background. I made the flowers by punching them with the circle scallop punch and then taking scissors and cutting a small slit in between each scallop.

I hope you enjoyed this really easy technique. I will hopefully be back this weekend with some cards and other things. Since its supposed to rain here on Saturday Im staying in and making Easter and Birthday cards. Hope everyone had a wonderful day. Until my next rambling :)
