Marbling Reminder for CAS MIx Up

It's the 15th of the month already.

Wow! Time does fly!
Using Stamping, Marbling, Die Cutting, Dry Embossing with Dies, Heat Embossing, and Inka Gold Smoosh

This is a reminder that we are still doing Marbling at
CAS Mix Up

This time I used fingernail polish to marble my paper.

Yep, fingernail polish.

I used the technique found in this video and came up with
some interesting results.

It doesn't smell as good as the shaving cream technique, but it has 
a sparkle from the glitter that was in the polish.

I was lucky and found this fingernail polish for $1.00 a bottle when
I bought my shaving cream.

You've gotta love those dollar stores!

I used the Stitched Square Died to cut the square opening
and the next larger die to dry emboss around that.

For a little extra pizzazz, I touched the edges of the frame in the
silver ink pad and heat embossed it.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

I'd never guess that was nail polish if you didn't say it was! What a beautiful background! And a gorgeous dragonfly!

Very unique marbled b'grd and love the contrast of it with the dragonfly. Plus the double rectangle die use and the silver ink edge..."little things mean a lot"!

I made such a mess with food coloring I wouldn't dare use nail polish but this looks wonderful, Bonnie.
