Hello out there, I love soup! That is one of my favourite lines to explain why I like soup, because it is soup-er! I think Pop Art and Andy Warhol are pretty super too, and the soup can image on Moyou London plate 03 from the Rebel collection is probably the main reason why I bought this plate! So I’m glad to have an excuse to use it for the Sunday (yeah I know its Tuesday!) AIS stamping challenge, which is to stamp with three colours.
Here I’ve stamped with Hit the Bottle stamping polishes and made decals by filling in the blank space with a different colour. I’ve stamped with “Blue-tiful”, “Purple Reign”, “In the Limelight” and “Snowed In”. It’s late, I’m tired, back soon 🙂
These nails were very much inspired by Canadian Nail Fanatic‘s pop art mani. In fact I fell in love with her nails and bought the stamping plate (Fun 1 or CF05) from My Online Shop the same day! Somehow I’d never got around to using it, until now.
I made decals, by stamping the Marilyn design onto a plastic bag and filling in the hair, skin, lips and eyes with different coloured polishes. A tutorial can be found here, I find it easier to stamp onto plastic, so a few decals can be made at once. Next time I’ll use a dotting tool for the lips and eyes for a neater effect and a less childlike look of lipstick application! There must be a few tricks to this technique, as my decals have air bubbles and in some places visible edges.
So I might have to do another Warhol inspired mani using a Che Guevara stamp that I have. Any excuse to do another Warhol! Monet is up next in the artist challenge and Game of Thrones in the nerd challenge. Thanks for looking.
