Adventures in Stamping - Pulsating Pink and Purple... what ever that means! After last weeks disappointing fail this week I wanted to do much better, and I think I did! The summer theme still didn't win, but I cheekily combined the two...wink wink ;)

I started off with a base of one coat of Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, then sponged the gradient with Accessorise Lilac Sorbet (I've said it before and I'll say it again, this is PINK not lilac), a lilac creme by Miss Sporty (which I suspect my be an Illamasqua Jo'Mina dupe but this is to be investigated...) and Sinful Colors Amethyst. I added a coat of Pink Dazzle by George at ASDA for a bit of sparkle (the pulsating bit if you will) and once that was all dry with the aid of a coat of Poshe I stamped with Konad Special White and fauxnad image plate Q1. *Helly wins the award for longest sentence EVAH* The image I chose is a really long one, so I just about fitted the ice cream and one or two sweeties on my ickle nubbies.

Gradient alone..........................Gradient avec sparkles

A thousand million times better than last week, right? It's girly and fun and totally not suited to the mod I'm in right now, but every time I've lookd at it today I've admired it and it's taken my mind of some of the shitty stuff that's going on around here at the moment. And I think my use of the ice cream image means I ticked two boxes - summery, and pink and purple in one mani. Up here for thinking, down there for dancing my friends...
