Sunday Stamping: Multiple Colors

I'm going to try to keep this post brief because it is starting to get light outside and I still have not gone to bed. I had four hours of sleep last night followed by a very long day and when I got home at 3 am today this is what I decided to do instead of going to bed. I've had this idea for today's Sunday Stamping challenge in my head all day and it had to be done. The challenge today is to stamp with multiple colors on one image...

For this manicure I started out with a base of Wet 'n Wild Black Creme. I stamped the design using Nailz Craze plate NC 03 with Pure Ice First Time and Essence Stamp Me! White. The reason I used white is because I don't have a good stamping red, so I stamped the strawberries using white and the stems using First Time. I then sponged over the white using Nicole by OPI Challenge Red-y. It is not the cleanest operation, so I definitely need to find a good red to stamp with. For the red berries, I again used Challenge Red-y to dot over them. Finally using KleanColor Metallic Yellow, I added small gold dots throughout the design...

I'm so excited about how this manicure turned out. It was inspired by a pair of Russian souvenir spoons that I kidnapped from my parents for photos. The NC 03 Russian themed plate is a spot on match for these spoons and I've been wanting to try this manicure for a while. Today's theme finally gave me the excuse to do it...

I hope you enjoy this mani! I'm heading to bed :)

P.S. I got new lights for my light box that I'm still experimenting with. The color of the manicure is true to life, but my skin tone looks a bit off...

Thanks for looking!
