Pond Ripples

The application that I write my posts on needs to start behaving. I wrote a whole post (again) today and just went and disappeared! Ugh. Today’s prompt was “travel.” I thought about palm trees, but that was too easy. Then my new stamping plates arrived!!! Llarowe was having a sale, and I just had to get some of the Emily de Molly stamping plates, because they are stunning and I’ve never seen anything like them (well, ok, maybe Messy Mansion has some, and MoYou but I don’t own any of them).

This particular design caught my eye, because it looked like ripples in water, so I decided to turn it into a pond! That technically counts as travel since there are no ponds near me :-p. Anyway, the stamp rather failed…which is to say I used one of my newer black polishes. It turns out (and I only went looking AFTER I finished this mani) that stamps with super-fine lines like this need special stamping polish. I don’t own special stamping polish, but I do own some old mostly empty bottles of black and white that I use to stamp! So I’ll try that next time.

I did practice this stamp the day after I did this mani, and it works great on paper…with the aforementioned thick black polish. Oops :-(. I was really disappointed with how this came out, because the stamp was stunning and the base was awesome and it just didn’t come together how I wanted! Oh well.

Anyway, the stamp is out of stock right now (usually it’s here) but some of the others are still on sale. No, I was not asked to review this (I wish!) but its cool enough that I’m sharing the link anyway :-p Enjoy!

  2. I think it’s really nice. Even though it didn’t turn out the way you wanted.
