Hello Loves. I decided to give the Adventures in Stamping Sunday Challenge a try this week. I'm not in love with the result, but I guess I can't love them all. :)
Working backward, I stamped this one with Mundo de Unas Lilac stamping polish and the reverse flower image from MoYou London Pro Collection XL 13.
For the base, I started with Ink Scarlet Empress. Scarlet Empress is a slightly sheer, pastel purple frost. When I wear it alone, I usually wear it over a white base to make it opaque. This is 3 coats without the white base. The second picture shows how the light bounces off of the frosty finish.
I then dry marbled Scarlet Empress with Ink Secret Desire. Secret Desire is a darker, shimmery purple. Random note, but this is the first Ink I ever owned. :) As you can see in the second picture, when the light hits the shimmer it shifts to a slightly lighter shade of purple.
Finally, here's a shot of the base before the stamp. I absolutely love how this marble turned out! I almost couldn't bring myself to finish the challenge and stamp over it.
Check back later this week for a video tutorial on how I did the dry marbled base for this mani. :)
