swell (CASOS, CARDS)

Made a card for two challenges:
CAS on Sunday - #28 Color me Pretty
CARDS magazine - wood veneer

Here's something fun for you.  Do you have tons of nail polish bottles in your house?  We do.  Just used some for Mardi Gras time as a matter of fact.  But what else can you do with nail polish?

Paint your wood veneer to get a cool enamel-y looking finish :)

A stencilled chevron wave.  A teeny weeny fish riding the waves and a Freckled Fawn wood veneer. That's it. Swell, eh?

Supplies for swell:
Paper:  cardbase The Paper Studio, Neenah
Stamps: Fiskars
Ink :Distress inks, 
Tools: chevron plate die PTI, rectangle Lil Inker
Other: veneer Freckled Fawn,  red nail polish
