Welcome to another episode of Sunday Stamping! Today's theme was to let someone else in our lives pick the stamp for us. My husband was happy to help, and he spent several minutes poring over some of my new plates to find an appropriate image.
I had started with a mani of Enchanted holos - Across the Universe on my index, middle, and pinky fingers, and Octopus' Garden on my thumb and ring finger. In RL they look very different, but my camera likes to portray purples as blues, so the eggplant base of OG looks like a slightly darker version of ATU. Interestingly enough, you can see some purple in the holo, so why I can have *that* purple, and not the violet or eggplant purple, I don't know.
My loving, romantic husband (are you reading this, honey?) picked a sweet rose stamp that he said reminded him of my tattoo, and roses remind him of me. Unfortunately, I could not get that stamp to work for love or money, so I scrapped the whole mani and put on Maybelline Color Show in Avante Green.
Hubby might have been influenced by the previous mani of Octopus' Garden when he chose this totes adorbz octopus stamp for me. I tried stamping with a few different colors, but the one that worked the best was a deep dark blue from Orly called Star of Bombay.
Have you ever tried letting someone else pick your mani color or stamp for you? Did they surprise you with their choices? I know I was!
