Adventures in Stamping - Favourite flower


The first Adventures in Stamping Sunday challenge was to base your mani on your favourite flower. My favourite are daffodils (hurry up spring!) but I don't have a daffodil image in my plate collection (is there one?) so I improvised. The image I used from Cheeky CH12 could be taken for daffodils if you squint, and I used green and gold to simulate the colours. The green is from a set by Royal Cosmetics that I got for Christmas (it's nice enough, just has that lovely smell - you know it aint 3-free...) and Barry M Gold Foil for the stamping. The glitter accent is Milani Gold Jewel Effect with a fine gold holo glitter on top.

I didn't think I'd like this mani, but I actually really do. I had it in my head that green and gold would be too festive, but it really does remind me of spring. The green isn't a shade I'd normally choose for myself either, but it actually suits me somewhat. You learn something new everyday...
