I’m back this evening with a really cool method of paper marbling… using NAIL POLISH! Yep, you read right… NAIL POLISH!
In Papertrey Ink’s Make-It-Monday #277, Lizzie does a fine job of showing you how to do it in the video HERE, so I won’t waste your time with more, except for these three tips:
- Make sure to use gloves and protect around your working area.
- I found it easier to drip from the bottle with the help of the applicator rather than from the applicator, which took too long.
- Make sure to have plenty of paper towels or a dedicated craft mat to lay your wet marbled paper on to dry.
What beautiful DIY backgrounds! They’re shiny and yet pliable, not hardened to the point of breaking.
Adding a polish with glitter tended to spread the colors away from the glitter, for a different look.
These would make great cards to give a special gal along with a manicure kit!
For the ones on black card bases, I went back to old corner punches to decorate the inside and make room for writing a message. Unfortunately, the embossing is so light, I couldn’t get it to show in a picture.
