Shadow Stamping - Red with white flowers & black shadow



Hello everyone!


Shadow Stamping

"Shadow stamping" was the challenge in the group Adventures In Stamping (A.I.S.) on Sunday two weeks ago. I had not even heard about it, but thankfully we were given a link to a very helpful YouTube tuorial. I'm very bad at lining up the images, so I didn't get the shadows where I wanted them to be. So I must admit that this was very difficult. I don't know why I always believe that everything is so easy before i start... The photo above is the one I shared in A.I.S. two weeks ago. It was taken in the middle of the process; after redoing the index finger nail, but before redoing the middle finger nail, and before I cheated and painted some shadows on the pinkie and the middle finger nail...

I was very proud of the shadow stamping on the thumb, but of course I managed to smear the flower when I applied the top coat.

Used for shadow stamping


I love the design on the Pretty Serious box, so here are two more photos of it:

I feel very lucky, because I won both the red polish and the stamping plates. In the Chit Chat Nails Bundle Monster Giveaway last fall, I won a 30$ gift code, and chose 5 nail art wheels and the 2012 stamping plate collection from the Bundle Monster web site. And as I told you in the last blog post, I won the gorgeous red Pretty Serious nail polish in the Norway Nails 1000 Facebook Likes Giveaway this summer. And the stamper and scraper I used was a gift from KKCenterHk! :-)

I like the effect, so I think I will try this technique again. I just have to learn how to line up the image. Next time I'll try to make a dot on the stamper. That's supposed to make it easier to stamp straight.

  4. Stunning floral design! I love the idea of double stamping with dif colours, I saw it before but haven't yet tried it, I imagine it's hard to stamp _that_ precisely with the second colour! You did it great :)

    1. Thanks! Yes, it was difficult to stamp precisely where I wanted the shadow to be :-) After redoing two nails, I still wasn't pleased with the result, so I cheated by painting a few shadows with a striper brush... If you try it, draw a line on your stamper, so you can see where to put the stamper. I've heard that it should be easier that way
