created by courtney challenge #3

I have been posting in the mornings since I started my blog so it will take me some time to get into the habit of posting at night. Sorry if you were here early to see today's post! Anyway...here is my Created by Courtney challenge for week #3!

This weeks technique is called Rolling Marbles and you can see an SCS tutorial right HERE. Can you believe that with three boys in the house I don't have any marbles (no brain jokes now!). I had to go borrow some from the church! Anyway, I combined rolling marbles with the technique challenge from the SNSS new release party which is the grid technique to created the paper you see on my card. I have to say that the rolling marbles technique is pretty fun and I probably went a little overboard on the color.

What do you do to join in on the fun? Well, just make a card with the Rolling Marbles technique, go to Courtney's blog, and leave a link to your card in her comments section. You will even have the opportunity to win a little prize from Courtney! If you choose to upload your card to SCS please use the keywork CBCC03 so that we can all find your card! Have fun! Here are links to the other challenge chicks...

Very cool! It almost looks like acid washed denim (a good thing!) and the grid really adds a nice dimension. I might have to do another one with an actual color. Thanks for the inspiration!

Courtney said...

I'm sorry...but I can't help myself...did you say you have no marbles?!! Did you misplace them or never had any? Maybe you can find some on e-bay. Well...the ones you found at church seem to be working, so maybe just go with those. hee hee hee. I know...I know...that was wrong. forgive me...I have no marbles. The card looks really cool. hugs!!
