Sunday Stamping: Double Stamp

It is time for another challenge in the group Adventures in Stamping. The challenge this week is to create a manicure featuring two different patterns. My mind instantly went to this barbed wire and roses combo on the new Bundle Monster plates. I have been wanting to try it since first seeing the plates and finally got a great excuse to try...

For the base of the manicure I started out with three coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. It is a perfect white with just the slightest touch a gray. Using the Bundle Monster plate BM-323, I stamped the barbed wire with OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! and the roses with OPI Danke-shiny Red. Both are from the new fall OPI Germany collection and I will have full swatches of them for you soon...

I originally intended to stamp the roses on all the nails, but I really liked the barbed wire by itself as well so I went with just an accent nail. Really like how this turned out...

I'd love to know what you think!
What other color combo would you dream up for barbed wire and roses?

Thanks for looking!

  1. That looks so pretty!

    As for other colours... I think creating a sepia effect would look good as well. Going from a beige base colour to a medium brown for the roses to a darker brown for the wire. :)

  2. This is gorgeous! I like that you only did the rose as an accent.

  3. Awesome! I have to say I love the idea of barbed wire and roses...soft vs hard.

  4. Nice! This is sassy and stylisH!

  5. awesome stamping, love that barbed wire design *.*

  6. so beautiful :) great idea with roses and thorns!

  7. Love this! What about black w silver barbed wire and red roses or black roses on holo silver! :) I need the bundle plate with the rose on it!

  8. I did this same manicure a few weeks ago but I used lots of different colors from the sally hansen insta-dri line

  9. That's a great mani ! Bittersweet. The name of the gray polish cracks me up. :) Sounds like my husband a lot....

  10. Thank you so much for your sweet comments and all your colors suggestions! That is truly the fun of stamping, the color combinations and manicure options are endless. I will have to try some of the suggestions out!:)

  11. Wow Anutka-this is stunning! It's hard to do a good double stamp so that they go together-perfection!!
