The Digit-al Dozen Does Stamping: Day Three!

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!


Yesterday I talked a bit about using a clear stamper to strategically place images in your stamping, and to use images meant to be layered. Today we're going to look at another intermediate mani that focuses on both placing images carefully with a clear stamper, and combining different images in your mani.




For this look, I started with a base of Zoya Sawyer, and Girly Bits Brick House (not the bottle I'm holding--I did that for contrast), then stamped images from UberChic Beauty 18-03 with Messy Mansion Soft Gold:

Notice that I centered the point where all the rays come together on the index and middle finger nails, and striped the other image down the side. Back in the day before clear stampers, this would have been an advanced mani, because stamping was so much harder to place precisely. Now I'd call this an intermediate mani, because you will still need to practice a little with the clear stamper to get the placement right--but not very much.


Okay, so we've gone through beginning stamping and looked at some intermediate stamping...stay tuned as I delve into a couple of advanced techniques on Thursday and Friday, and in the meantime, check out the lovely stamped manis the other ladies did, below!


Big hugs,

    1. They really did. I feel like stamping before that was like my tragic childhood before the interwebs and smartphones. Thank goodness we're not stuck in those dark ages anymore! ;-)

    1. Aw, thank you so much! I figured since I mostly do stamped art, I needed to use stamping week for something a little different with it...:)
