More marbling, and stamps too

The methods Marise and Mari demonstrated were simple and quick - scribes were able to make beautiful patterns after a few minutes and some of the designs made are shown in the photo.

The afternoon session changed tempo and we had a go at stamping and using templates for making envelopes and cards with the marbled papers. Mari had a board for folding cards and envelopes that was indented with standard paper sizes so it was easy to use with a bone folder.

Everyone was very taken with the large roller stamps with interchangeable rollers and different patterns. Used with multi-coloured stamp pads you could make really effective borders on envelopes and cards.
