Happy Easter

It's Thursday, and finally posting my MIM card!
Lizzie showed us how to use nail polish to create 
a marbling technique. The effects are never the same,
but can be drop dead gorgeous, after the initial learning mistakes.

Just look at what color combos can produce:

These are what I call 'successes'.
Honestly had to toss about 4 that I call practice.

I read from another blogger that the polish sometimes settled to the bottom, 
or formed a glaze on the top. I guess it just depends on the polish.
Sometimes, moving the bottle quickly back and forth, creates
lines that are marbled looking. Like I said, hard to stop seeing
what the next surprise will be!
I chose the softest 'Eastery Egg' result for the background of my card.

A couple of pinks, a coral and a platinum  made this happy accident.
Thanks to Lizzie, I found this technique addicting! Spent a happy 
afternoon trying all colors I had. Mostly colors I keep on hand
for mani pedi days with the granddaughters!

  1. Wasn't this a fun technique? Your card is so beautiful!!! Love all the extras you made, too. Will be fun to pull one out in the future.

  2. Yes, I agree...definitely no two the same and some turn out not so nice. My polish sank to the bottom so, I lost that marblizing effect...came out more like blobs. And that was was fresh polish. Maybe I should have bought the $12 bottles. I don't wear polish (hate it) so buying a few bottles was just for this challenge. 😝

  3. What a fun post Nancy and I love seeing all your results! And so happy that I wasn't the only one who saw "Easter" when playing along with this wild and fun technique! And I can hardly wait for my granddaughter to come over and do mani's and Pedi's with the fun and bright colors I bought for this technique...she will LOVE it!! And your card turned out BEAUTIFUL the softer and oh so elegant colors you used! Definitely an afternoon of fun with this technique!! :0)
