This week's Adventure in Stamping theme was "Inspired by a TV show you're watching" which was surprisingly difficult for me to do with stamping. The show I went with is Doctor Who, or rather certain episodes of Doctor Who. Can you guess which ones?
So I just started watching Doctor Who around the time that all the nail-istas were posting their Day of the Doctor manicures in November. Since then I've watched all 7 seasons. I finished up last week. And the one image that really stuck with me was from Journey's End/The Stolen Earth (I won't ruin it for those that haven't watched it) but here's one of the images.
To get the background I started with 3 coats of Essie's Turquoise & Caicos. Even at three coats there were still naked spots. Then I did my first attempt at the saran wrap technique using American Apparel Summer Peach.
Then I made stamping decals using Vivid Lacquer plates VL013 and VL017. And I stamped a few more straight on the nails just for good measure.
To add the perspective of how close the planets looked in these episodes I added a skyline from VL004 but I think I liked it better without the skyline.
There you have it. I was surprised at how difficult it was coming up with a manicure for this theme considering I watch a lot of TV. I hope those of you who have watched Doctor Who can at least see what I was trying to go for...
'Til next time...
