Nail Polish Glitter

Yesterday I saw Taheerah playing along with Mama Elephant’s January photo inspiration challenge, and I felt inspired to join in.

The only downside:  after I was done  making the card and photographing it, I realized the challenge entry was closed!

Here is the inspiration photo:

I have combined pink with gold before, but not with silver and pearl, which in this photo looks amazing!

Here is the card I came up with:

ME Jan challengeYes, those silver glitter blobs are nail polish. I was going to do thin swirls, but I accidentally dropped those large droplets and decided to just let them be instead of wiping them off.

Before applying the nail polish, I heat embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder, then added Distress ink (Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick) using a jumbo sponge dauber. I don’t know if it is the sponge dauber or the paper (Bristol 100 lb) that allowed me to apply ink from the center without getting ink smudges. Normally I apply ink starting off the page, and slowly go in with a circular motion.

I am not sure I like the card very much, but it was fun playing along a challenge after a long period of dormancy!
