Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! This week the Digit-al Dozen has flat lost it's mind. I kid you not. We are doing what I think is the hardest challenge we've ever done. This week we are recreating a Digit-al Dozen mani done by a Digit-al Dozen member past and present during a Digit-al Dozen week. Say that fast three times for crying out loud!
So what's so hard about this challenge. Well for one we have a lot of really good talent. We have a lot of exceptional free hand artists as well as exceptional stamping artists and I think it's hard for someone to want to recreate a free hand if you are a stamper or try to stamp if you are a free hand artist. And we have a lot of members. While 12 is in our title we always have a good 20 in our group. And we are choosing past or present members--that's a lot of mani's!!! WHAT WE WERE THINKING!?!
While I think every single person in our group is amazing I had to do something I thought I could do and do well and because we also only have 5 days to do it in there's a lot of really fab mani's I had to leave behind. Thankfully there's always a Monkey See Monkey Do Monday right around the corner LOL!
For my first design I actually chose one of my all time favorite mani's done by Sheila of Pointless Cafe. Sheila is an exceptional free hand artist and she has a flair for color. She knows what looks great and she always does an amazing job. Today I recreated her Red Riding Hood mani from our Fairy Tales week
I just loved the starkness of this mani by her when I first saw it and am so glad I got to create it
Here they are side by side, different yet the same
I think I'm off to a good start on this week! But it's only day 1 LOL! I'm going to go and check out what everyone else wanted to recreate!
