Lit from Within: Sunday Stamping - Birth Day Plate Number

Sunday Stamping - Birth Day Plate Number

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.

 My Thumb came out the cleanest, I think. 

I liked the idea, but the execution... whomp, whomp.  Try again!


  1. Have you had success with this plate before? Bundle Monster is sending me my THIRD replacement of this plate; most from this set work great for me, but 301, 308, and 309 were big-time duds. And that plate is one of the main ones I was looking forward to! But BM is being really nice about it, so I can't complain too much.

    1. This was my first time trying to use this plate. Maybe I'll play around with it some more and if it's defective, I'll send BM an e-mail, too.


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
