Digit-al Dozen, Animal Week; Day 5

I'm a little late in posting my Day 5 challenge mani for animal week; this is what I came up with!  A warning; this post is very picture heavy!

Started with a base of one coat of Sinful Colors Cool Gray, no topcoat.  This was pretty good coverage for one coat; I didn't do two as I knew I'd be layering it.

Added Barry M Grey at tips with sponging.

More sponging using FingerPaints Black Expressionism.

Decided the sponging on the thumb wasn't quiet was I was looking for so added a bit more, then did cleanup.

Prior to adding stamping, sponged in a little grey at the cuticle on the thumb.  Added the wolf using LLC10 which was stamped using black Konad special stamping polish.  Also added the moon using A53 using yellow Konad special polish.

Added tree branches using LLC B using black Konad special polish. In hindsight, I like the look of the mani at this stage, but I did add more.

Added stars using NC02 using white Konad special polish.

Stamped in a few clouds using grey FUN stamping polish from Konad m79.

Added a few more clouds with a custom blend I made on the image plate as I went along by mixing grey FUN stamping polishing with a drop of white which was mixed with a toothpick on the plate, then scraped.

Using a brush, extended a few tree branches using black Konad special polish.

Topped with SV.

(Couldn't decide which pix I liked better!)
