Water Marbling with Color Club Electro Candy

I love water marbles, but I don't do them often. One reason, I have trouble with the AC blowing on the water. Especially since it's 105 outside and the AC runs nonstop. But, I went ahead and did this one, because I have so many summery manis I want to do before summer is over.

I used all of the colors in the Color Club Electro Candy set. I started with a drop of pink and used a drop of each color and ended with a drop of pink. I taped my nails as My Simple Little Pleasures tutorials has taught me and dunked two at a time. The pattern I drew in the water was simple. Just attached the marble (a straight line through the middle), then back and forth lines. I dipped my nails perpendicular to those lines. I'm not good enough at it to video or take pictures! But MSLP has great tutorials. :)


Then I had this idea to stamp it with some butterflisque images from the DRK-B image plate. I thought the curly  ones reminded me of antennae.

Are you tired of summer colors yet? When do you stop?
Have a great day!
