Since I got off work very early today I was so excited because I could use the extra time to give stamping a try. Well, because I can't get enough nail blog reading in, I did spend too much of my extra time reading nail blogs when that I was supposed to be nail stamping! Once I finally pealed myself away from the computer and off the internet I attempted my very first nail stamping.
I had a hard time lining the image up with where I wanted it on the nail and that was probably the hardest part. As a whole, it was a relatively easy process. With a bit more practice I hope I will work out the alignment issue. I actually had an easier time aligning my off hand because instinctual for this hand I held the stamper facing up an then rolled my finger over it. Wish I would have done that with my dominate hand. I will try that next time.
Ok, clean-up and bold spots need to be worked on too! Yikes! It's not too bad for my first go at it. I don't hate it. What do ya think? Any tip, tricks, shortcuts, etc. are certainly welcomed and appreciated. Thanks :)
