Adventures in Stamping - Plate ending in 5

Morning lovlies.

This weeks Adventures in Stamping challenge was to use a plate ending in 5, so I chose Bundle Monster 205. I've been wanting to use this particular desig for a while – are they butterflies? Are they bows? I have no clue. The BF said butterflies so I'll go with that. I used two coats of Orly Au Champagne (from my untrieds, as it is Untried Month) as my base – a really lovely shimmery white that has a matte finish when it's dry. I can see myself reaching for this a lot. I'm not so keen on white cremes because they always look chalky and stark on me, but the shimmer on this counteracts that. I them stamped using Color Club Perfect Mol-ten, Hot Like Lava and Cold Metal, putting a dab of each on the plate before scraping them across.

Au Champagne alone

On my right hand I scraped a couple of times before picking up the image so the edges were a bit more blended together, and I prefered that. But I'll save you from any more pictures of my manky nail and leave it at that!
