Faux Marble

Friday, February 18, 2011

I did not set out to create this marbleized look, but as I progressed it started to emerge and I went with it.  I added color veining with a paint brush rolled onto my ink pads and then twisted and dragged the paint brush across my image.  I really love the effect.  Once I was happy with it, I coated it in two layers of clear embossing powder and that really brought out the depth and colors.

Thanks for stopping by. 
Have a wonderful weekend!!
