Sunday Stamping - 2-color oopsie from the Vault



Today's AIS theme is a 2-color stamp; more specifically, using 2 or more colors on the stamp itself.  Since today's theme for me is the oopsie, I found an older stamp I did with that technique that didn't quite work out the way I'd hoped.

I started with a base coat of Julep Susie.  Like most pastels, it was a pain to work with.  I should have seen that as an omen, I suppose, that this mani was doomed from the start!

I don't remember which plate I used, and I forgot to take a pix. But, I do know that I put three different colors on the stamp - Julep Alfre, Isla, and Piper.

They are all pretty frosty, and I thought they would stamp well, but they are all too light.  Alfre, the purple, is probably the strongest.  I'm pretty sure that I then tried to double stamp to see if I could get more color on the nail, but that didn't work so well, either!

If I can't be a good example, then today, let me be a horrible warning!

  1. I think it kind of looks like marbling. I like it.

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.
