As part of an IG challenge, there was a prompt of “double applied stamps”. I figured that just meant two stamps…but NO it turns out you can PICK UP A DESIGN INSIDE ANOTHER DESIGN. My mind was blown. I had to try it. Of course, it was also close to valentines day so I went with hot pink and lace? I don’t know. The end result is actually pretty ugly, but I am going to try this again (not near a holiday) with a better set of stamps and colors. Basically, you apply your first stamp (black lace in my case) and then using the same stamper with the design on it, you use a different color over an almost negative-space stamp. What is then left of the stamper is the first designs superimposed over the second design but only where the second design is! So cool.
~ Hot pink: Atomic – Silicate
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Blue: Zoya – Yummy
~ Stamps: BP – L084, BM – 208
I feel like it is getting rarer and rarer that I learn an honestly new nail art technique…mild variations, sure. But this? This is cool. Now I need to find more negative-space style designs to try it out on! Hope you enjoyed the idea, even if the execution could use some work!
