{Nail Polish} Marbling Day 2

Saturday, May 10, 2014

Good Afternoon!
As I shared yesterday, I made a second marbled piece using nail polish.
I used a sketch from Retro Sketches as a staring point for this card's design.

Here are the directions from yesterday's post in case you missed it:
{Using an old shallow container {I used an old plastic take out container}filled with about an inch of water, I drizzled each color of nail polish onto the water's surface.  Using the end of a thin paint brush, I swirled the polish colors together until it looked cool.
Working rather quickly, I placed a piece of water color paper face down onto the swirls and then removed it.  The nail polish adheres quickly to the paper.  I set it aside to dry and then you are left with the most gorgeous paper to work with!}
Have a great weekend and
Happy Mother's Day!
