The Digit-al Dozen Does Fairy Tales--The Poison Apple

Hi Everyone!  Woot the week is almost over!  I don't know about anyone else but I am pretty exhausted and can't wait for the weekend.  I haven't played around with too many mani ideas lately so I'm really hoping to have the time to do that this weekend.  Then of course we have the  big Packers  vs Seahawks game on Sunday.  OMG that one is going to be a real nail biter I think!

Today I'm doing something that looks super easy but was in fact pretty hard.  I had to make 2 decals and then sandwich them together to get the look I wanted.  It was the first time I had ever done anything like it.  Here's my take on Snow White's poisoned apple.

I had to find an apple image first and stamp in just black.  Then I added my red dot to it.  I made another decal of the holey lace image and then put it over the top of the black apple.  Then I had to cut it out!  At first it looked just like this which I didn't think looked enough like an apple
So I had to go back and draw the apple shape over my apple.  I was worried I would ruin it but it turned out okay!

I found the inspiration for my mani from this cool picture
I think it turned out pretty good--what do you think?
I'm working on an epic tale for tomorrow right now!  Let's hope I can get it to work.  In the meantime I'm heading over to check out what my friends did!
