Happy Mother's Day

My Kinder/Prep class did some marbling using shaving foam and re-inkers.  This was the first step in a long process to  make a very special card for their mums for Mother's Day.

Step 1:  Get an adult to squirt a heap of shaving foam onto a plastic plate.



Step 2:  Add a few drops of different coloured re-inkers.
  



 

Step 3:  Swirl the inks together but be careful not to over mix the colours.



Step 4:  Press your paper into the swirled, inky mixture and lift off.



Step 5:  Leave for a couple of minutes to allow the ink pattern to soak in and then with swirly motions, wipe off the excess shaving cream.

 
Step 6:  Wait for your marbled paper to dry before cutting out the dress shapes with the dies.
Step 7:  Cut out the card bases using a Big Shot Machine to make your pop-up card.
 
 
 
Step 8:  Attach your 'marbled dresses' to the inside and outside of your card.
 
Step 9:  Decorate and write in your special card for Mum!

Happy Mother's Day!
