So I joined a new group on face book Adventures in Stamping. So, every Sunday I will be posting a stamp manicure with a theme that comes from them. I am really excited about this. I figure it will help me improve in mt stamping abilities and use it in more imaginative ways.
So today's theme is tape and stamping. I had a really hard time figuring out what to do for this and while I was driving home one day this week I remembered the show Clarissa Explains It All. Clarissa's room in the show had floral wallpaper that she painted black square over.
So I used her wall for inspiration.
I used all China Glaze polishes. The base color is Secret Periwinkle. When I first put it on it was a beautiful blue, but with Wicked Style stamped over the top it brought out the purple tones. Then I taped off the accent nail and painted it in Liquid Leather. This is only the second time I have used striping tape, but I love using is it. It is so much easier to use than scotch tape and building it up for thicker lines, what I did here, is relatively easy.
The stamp is Bundle Monster BM-306. WS probably isn't the best stamping polish, but I don't think it was too bad.
I know it doesn't look exactly like Clarrisa's wallpaper, but I had just gotten SP and wanted to try it.
Well, I hope you like it. If you have any improvement ideas, let me know. If you have a moment, check out the other group member's manicures, they are amazing!
