Here's my card for this week's PPC-CC challenge. It's made using a technique I learnt at our last team meeting. I'm not sure if there's a name for it but I'll just call it "rolling marbles". All you need is some marbles, a container of some sort and some marbles (or anything that rolls around). You won't believe how hard it was for me to find marbles. I looked everywhere! Either they aren't cool anymore or it's not quite marble season. Jamie couldn't find them either so he suggested I use the marbles from my Hungry Hungry Hippos game! Worked like a charm. So you put a few drops into a container with a lid, drop in the marbles and shake shake shake! Then put a little adhesive on the lid and attach the paper on the inside of the container. Close the lid and shake shake shake again. I kinda messed up with the bottom because the marbles rolled a little too much along the bottom edge. Yes yes yes, I messed up on the shake shake shake part.. Who woulda thought one could mess that part up! Forgive the crooked photo too...
