ASBMF #14-Spring Choice

The final installment in the April Showers Bring May Flowers Challenge.  I have squeezed in eveything in a short amount of time here at the end because I started this challenge and another spring challenge at the same time thinking it would keep me busy.  It was a little too much.  I am committed to doing the Purple Crumpet Fairy Summer Challenge because I LOVE all of the items on this list.  I just couldn't resist.  But I needed some time to prepare in advance because the posts are so close together and sometimes life gets in the way of polish.  So, for the final item on this challenge....I give you....my first fairly decent water marble.

I have done two others prior to this which are not posted because there is no photographic evidence of them.  They sucked.  It was a catastrophy.  I am constantly amazed at how awesome some of them come out.  I am still not thrilled but it is pretty good compared to my others.  Next time around...I have to do a basecoat.  In some of the areas, you can see the color gets thin.  For this, I used Color Club's Pink Satina and Jackie Oh and China Glaze's Turned up Turquoise from their neon collection.  I even wore it to work like this, even though I generally try to stay conservative.
This challenge was created by the lovely Hannah from Polished Prisms. You can check out the group's facebook page to see all the designs in one spot but please take the time to see what the other ladies have done along with their blogs here also...........
