Nail Polish Marbling

Dear Ones~
Hope you have had a good weekend. Mine was uneventful, which is a good thing.

This card has been made for the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge. This week Lizzie showed us how to do marbling with nail polish and water. Watch how she does it HERE. It was super fun to do, albeit kinda messy. And a word of caution, make sure to do it in a well ventilated area, the fumes can be pretty strong.

Here's my card:
Luckily I have a lot of nail polish. Not that I'm a fanatic or anything, I just seem to never throw them away. Anyway, Here I used a metallic silver, a metallic pink and a very dark red. I love the result. The thing is, it never comes out the same way twice....super cool. I embellished with PTI Day Dreamer flowers and leaves which I accented with a white gel pen.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
PTI Day Dreamer Stamp
PTI Botanical Silhouettes Stamp for Greeting
GKD Cranberry Tart and Dusty Rose Inks
SU Basic Grey and Smokey Slate Inks
White Gel Pen
Nuvo Crystal Drops
Stash Nail Polish

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate all your sweet comments. Time to start dinner, it's venison steaks and a salad. Yummo!!!! 


  1. Well, this turned out smashing. Great job. I think that sometimes when you make a busy background, it is hard to get a stellar card. You accomplished that my friend. Love how you split it and just added the flower and let the background shine through.

  2. What an interesting technique for a bright, colorful background. Your card is beautiful!! I don't think there's any technique you can not master.

  3. Lovely background! I love the colors and the pretty flowers you added to it...such a fun technique.
