It's good ole Stampin' Sunday around these parts...let's get to stamping!
This weeks challenge at Adventures in Stamping was Unnatural Animals. Pink Cats, Purple Dogs, you know the drill.
I opted for a green and white gradiated zebra with pink stripes. Not too unnatural, right?
Here's how I do my gradient, nice and messy like.
I'm not into all that new fangled taping of the surrounding skin. I can't be bothered with that kind of preparation! Plus I know I'm gonna have to clean up my cutes after stamping anyway so I just do it the hard way...
So let's see - My base was a greyed white polish I frankened and Julep Leah sponged onto all 5 nails. Top coated. Then stamped the zebra stripes on with Milani Fast Fuchsia.
Thumb nails have opalescent microbeads.
PS - I just wanted to take a moment to send prayers to all the friends and family of the Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch. I grew up listening to the Beastie Boys (yes, I am THAT old), had the pleasure of seeing them perform quite a few times and am really bummed that he is no longer on this planet making amazing music and videos for the world to enjoy. God bless ya kid.
