The stamp I chose to use (you will see it later) reminded me of something you might find in a library in an old castle or a country kitchen. Just seemed appropriate. It is a bit difficult to see because I used a darker base, but believe me, it is gorgeous!
I started out with two coats of CDB Laquer Hidden Oak. It is a gorgeous forest green with scattered holo particles. My idea of a perfect Christmas green! I have a thing for green polish, so I was so happy to add this to my stash during a preChristmas sale.
Next I stamped with Messy Mansion MM16 and Finger Paints Black Expressionism. I love this plate! So baroquey. Yes spell check, I know that is not officially a word, but it is appropriate. I'm using it.
Finally I added purple for the grapes. I can't remember what I used and I didn't write it down. Dooh! They look a little blue in my pics, but they really are purple.
There you have it, my first wallpaper inspired manicure. Three more on their way before the end of the month! Don't forget to check out what the other talent came up with! Thanks for looking and commenting!
