The Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns On Patterns

Hi Everyone!! Happy Monday!  This week The Digit-al Dozen is stupidly attempting something we are calling Patterns On Patterns.  At first when I heard this I thought okay double stamping no problem.  But it is ALOT harder than it sounds.  Yesterday I tried 5 different mani's for this week and they all sucked.  All of them.  Every. Single. One.  So it's not just about some double stamping.  This is going to  be an incredibly challenging week and because I do like to challenge myself I didn't want to just rely on double stamping.

Today though I do have something super cute to show you!  This was a pretty labor intensive mani because it was a lot more than just double stamping. It turned out to be like quadruple stamping but the effort is totally worth it!

I actually went back and used an idea from the first mani I had ever tried after watching a youtube video.  I pulled out my trusty BM04 plate and some of my colorful Mundo de Unas polishes and went to town.  Then I grabbed one of my favorite Mash plates--Mash 40 and stamped over it.  I don't use my Bundle Monster and Mash plates too often anymore because my nails are too long for them so it was a real treat to be able to come up with this look.


Oh my goodness this one really turned out cute!



I know I say I'm not a fan of cute but sometimes I am!

Here's a nice close up so you can see the starburst pattern underneath the swirls

So for my first day I at least came up with something good!  Hopefully tonight I can hit the drawing board again and not be disappointed!

Let's head over to see how hard or easy it was for everyone else!

  7. Oh for sure it's not about double stamping...that would be so much easier...it's getting the pattern on top of the pattern and making sure they go together is all the problem. No, this was a hard challenge for sure even if stamping. Your mani turned out fabulous; hard to think you found it a challenge!

  15. I totally agree with you and MrsRexy, finding the right images/colors that go together and compete made this theme tough. But these are so in-your-face-awesome, I love it!
