Digital Dozen Does Flowers-Glitter

I wanted to try this technique for awhile.  Clearly I need a little more practice but I am happy overall with the first try.  I used RBL Motorini as the base.  You can see the glow in the pinky.  Then I used the stamper to capture flower images and painted in the flowers before applying it to my nail.  I learned a few things first time around so next time should turn out better.  I do like this color combo.

Digital Dozen Does Flowers-Black and White

I love double stamping.  I wish I had a better eye for determining what looks good together.  I figured you can never go wrong with black and white.  This was very classic looking in person.

The Digital Dozen Does Flowers- Vintage

I decided that I needed to add a touch of fall into my flowers.  A nice easy, vintage floral design here........

Digital Dozen Does Flowers-Tinted

OK, I am committed to trying to get back on some kind of a regular schedule.  I will start out with my five flower posts this week alongside my Digital Dozen crew.  Today I will begin with my least favorite design of the week.  Sadly, it was my favorite in person but I never checked the pictures after I took them.  I didn't get the white balance correct so they came out a tad dull looking.  The colors were so much more vibrant in person.  this was done using some tints over a white stamp.

Neutral Flowers

No surprise, I am behind.  I usually try to get my manicures done way in advance and I was on a roll but my nails broke, several of them so I waited to try and grow them out as much as I can.  This is as good as it gets.  I did a neutral background with Zoya Avery and added a little pattern with dots as the base for some summer flowers.  This is actually very conservative for me.

Digit-al Dozen-Grapevine

When I think of summer, I think of having a glass of wine on the patio at night.  Grapes are the obvious next progression for this.  Here I have a little gradient, stamped with some gold vines and I added the grapes using acrylic paints.

Digit-al Dozen Eye Of The Tiger

I have been thinking about doing this one for a while but I wasn't sure how to get the right depth in the image. When I thought about summer, one of the things that came to mind was heat and rain (since that is all we have had here in NY).  The rain forest was a logical progression.  I ended up getting the effect by stamping over black with a darker green underneath and a lighter green on top.  The tiger coming through the trees just gave it some interest.
