Good morning blog friends....

Another disaster trying to video this technique!  After, at least 8 sessions, I've had to admit defeat and when our 11 year old grandson gets to his dad's today from school, we'll be hot footing over there for him to show both grandparents what 'we' are doing wrong!

I used to record using my iPhone 5 but it would take a few hours to upload to YouTube so last week when it was my birthday my son really surprised me by  buying me an iPhone 7.  That was totally unexpected and I really appreciate him doing this.  So now the videos upload in next to no time  and, when I showed you the video of the mini album made with 5"x7" cards and the 4" card that folds away, both were recorded on the new mobile, not a problem until yesterday when I was making the video for today.  I'm hoping sometime today there will be a video uploaded!

It's a little similar to the 'shaving foam' technique but with the nail polish the water doesn't get 'murky' as it does using shaving foam and alcohol inks

This card does have a definite marble look but the other samples, that you will eventually see, don't so much

I've used another one of Tim's 'small talk' sayings on today's card

Finally do you think anything else could go wrong?.... of course it could, it's me lol.  I realised after I'd taken the photo that there was a smudge of red on the sentiment and then realised again, I had the card upside down when I adhered the sentiment in place!  Obviously I found this out after the wet glue was completely dry

You live and learn....

 A close up of said sentiment

Until either later or tomorrow, or both!...

  1. Love the sentiment - so me!!! marbling techniques are always good to do - fabulous backgrounds for any card!

  2. Hi June this is a stunning card. I just love the background you have created. Have a great day. Take care. Hugs Jackie

  3. Thanks June for sharing your mishaps as well as the lovely cards you make !!! There is hope for me yet !!

  4. Like this card, I love the marble effect. Ive done one with shaving foam and was quite impressed so might have a go with nail varnish

  5. I love the marbled effect of the nail polish - another new technique for me to try. Thanks for the inspiration. xx

  6. I love this technique June. Eagerly awaiting the video.

  7. The sentiment should be my 'mantra'.

    With all the equipment, tools, cardstock and embellishments you have, I REALLY don't know how you know where anything is, mind you i wouldnt mind if i were in that position lol xxx

  8. Oh I thought there was a video so ignore previous post comment, gorgeous card though, xxx
