Today's stamping challenge was to use a plate that ended in the number that corresponded to the date you were born. I was born on the ninth of February, so I chose BM-309, and some owls!
This idea I had didn't really pan out in RL, but this isn't just about my successes.. it's about the journey, so here's my mani, warts and all...
I started with one coat of Kleancolor Holo Green. So pretty and sparkly, though not exactly green. I would have used more coats, but I knew I was layering. On top, Sea Lore Adella. I was going for a leafy green tree look. I liked this effect.
I used Finger Paints Black Expressionism and Maybelline Bold Gold for the owls.. but they just wouldn't stamp clearly. I used top coat in between the glitter and the stamp, but I just couldn't get a good, clean stamp.
I liked the idea, but the execution... whomp, whomp. Try again!
