Crossword

I almost want to call this one a fail, but that implies that I did something wrong…which I didn’t! Sometimes stamps just don’t quite work, despite my best efforts!😦

I wanted to do a newspaper crossword-type background and then add a stamp over it. Yes, I know this isn’t actually a crossword (my lab mates are obsessed with crosswords. They do them every day, and call me in for nerd help), but I don’t know what these are actually called. Wordfinder?

Regardless, I made a saran wrap base with greys and nudes (I forgot to write the colors down…sorry!), then stamped over it, and then top coated with matte polish. And, just my luck, the sun didn’t come out ONCE while I was wearing these, so we don’t even get any sunlight photos!

Unfortunately, the stamp really didn’t want to pick up…when it did pick up it didn’t want to transfer (darn tiny lines) and even then it looked pretty awful! So, this was a bust. Tomorrows is better, I promise!

  1. This nail art is just great with its multiple layers to add interest and an effect of the mental process at work doing whatever you call this “amusement technique.”

    Warmest wishes to you and your family for a Happy and “full of freedom for good” Passover!!

  2. It still does look quite cool though? I’ve always called them word-searches!
