Adventures in Stamping Challenge: Two Techniques

This week’s Adventures in Stamping Challenge is to combine another technique with stamping. I decided to do gradient nail art plus stamping nail art since I’ve only done a gradient once before. I picked Nailtini Blushing Lady as my light pink and FNUG Front Page as the hot pink. I started with two layers of Blushing Lady and then sponged on Front Page. After it dried, I used Konad Special Black along with Vivid Lacquer Plate VL004 to stamp a bow and dots design on top. The stamping is too smudgy and crooked for my preference. I actually wish the design of this stamp was inverted so it didn’t need as much polish or precision. :( Oh well!

In other news, I’m super excited: The Japanese Cherry Blossom tree my husband bought me as a gift last year has its first-ever blossom!! I’m so excited! I love the gorgeous pink blossoms these trees produce in the spring and I am beyond thrilled that mine is starting to bloom! Happy day!
