Marbling!

Time for another challenge over at Crafts4Eternity and this week Michele really pushed us! Or was it just me that felt pushed lol. The challenge this week is:
1. follow the sketch
2. include some marbling
3. make your own embellishment
Making my own embellishment was ok, I made a flower from different sized punches and then added some lilac sand for the centre of the flower. But when it came to marbling, well lets just say my form wasn't great and after three messy attempts using water and inks I gave up. Should have went for the shaving foam method but had ran out of steam. so I cheated and found some marbled paper in my stash (sshh don't tell Michele lol). The image is Sugar nellie and coloured with promarkers. The sketch is a lovely one really enjoyed punching the circles and turning them into buttons. The prize this week is a lovely digi from Crafty Sentiments so do try and get a card done for the challenge.
I am entering this into these challenges:
1. I Love ProMarkers - buttons
2. Totally Gorjuss - thinking of you
