Hello all, sorry for the lapse in blogging lately. I waste so much time on the computer but when I think about blogging, "I could be working!" Then my cat lays down to sleep on all my papers and I get lazy again!
I decided to get a little artsy this week, though, and created a scenic stamping mani for a contest where the theme is Fun in the Sun. I am excited to blog about this actually. I actually drew this up on paper and stamped where everything should go before I stamped it out.
I started with a base of Sally Hansen Barracuda
And sponged on Sally Hansen Brisk Blue for the top of the sky and in areas with ocean, the ocean background. Then I went over the sky again once it dried with SH Barracuda to tone down the brightness of the blue.
Cleanup! I usually just rub a qtip around the skin until I do detailed cleanup. Especially with blues, don't want to have smurf hands!
I painted down a little OPI Skull and Glossbones where I wanted sand/dirt. Then I sponged on Sally Hansen Quick Sand, which is sparkly and sand-like.
Then.....I stamped. A lot.
I used my new MASH plates and Konad/Fauxnads for this.
I don't know any dolphin songs soooo I was singing Baby Beluga the whole time in my head >_>
I know, lots of photos! I love this though! Even if the butterfly stamps were jerks!
Baby beluga in the deep blue sea...sigh, it is there again. haha!
