If you’ve been too scared to try marbling, I’ve got you covered with this simple technique that includes chalk pastels. You read that right–CHALK PASTELS, not paint! I’m going to show you how to use this technique paired with an SVG file from the YayDay Be Mine SVG Bundle to make an easy DIY valentine day card idea. You can then finish it with a DIY envelope. See, I told you, I’ve got you covered this Valentine’s Day!
Marbling is a really fun crafting technique to try. Paint and even nail polish can be used to create pretty marbling effects. If you’ve never heard of using chalk pastels, you’re in for a real treat. You can control the amount of color that gets added to your project. Add less color to the water for a lighter, whiter look. Add more color to fill up your paper. This technique really is fool proof–there’s no wrong way to do it! I added the valentine SVG file to the front of my marbled design making it the perfect Valentine’s Day craft! Make sure to watch the video below to see how to make your own easy DIY valentine day card idea!
