Sunday Stamping: The Great Thanksgiving Heist...

Is seems like ages since the last time I participated in a Sunday Stamping challenge for the group Adventures in Stamping. With the holidays quickly approaching, this week's theme is Thanksgiving or Winter nails. I chose to go with the Thanksgiving theme and I'm happy to present my manicure to you. I have affectionately been referring to it as "The Great Thanksgiving Heist"...

The manicure started out with a base of Nicole by OPI Who Red My Journal??? stamped with Essie Good as Gold using Messy Mansion plate MM19. I recently purchased the Essie Mirror Metallics collection (all except for the silver) for stamping and they all work perfectly! Essie Good as Gold is just slightly lighter, more of a champagne gold, than my favorite Maybelline Bold Gold, but works just as well...

I created stamped decals for the rest of the images. The woodland creatures are from the same Messy Mansion MM19 plate. I stamped with SinfulColors Black on Black and then colored them in using acrylic paints. The pumpkin is also stamped with Black on Black using Bundle Monster plate BM-H11 and colored in using acrylic paint. To give the creatures a bit of a base to stand on, I added gold tips using Good as Gold...

I imagine the little fox sneaking in to steal the pumpkin for a big Thanksgiving celebration in the forest. The two hedgies are standing guard while the theft takes place. The perfect heist, although looks like the hedgie on my pinkie nail is asleep on the job. This is because I used a stamper to stamper technique to flip him and he got distorted in the processes, but I think it turned out even better that way...

Let me know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!
