Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns; Day 4

Here we are at Day 4 patterns on patterns challenge!  I have to say, I thought I was pretty clever when I did this mani, coming up with two patterns in one swoop of a scraper!  Here's what I came up with!


Started with a base of two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls with a sponged gradient of Mundo de Unas 3 and 6 and FUN Bubble Blue stamping polish.  Yes!  I used the stamping polishes in place of regular polishes as I wanted EXACTLY the same colours in this gradient as what I was stamping with. 


Here are my two patterns at once; using three stamping polishes, did a pattern gradient on top of a patterned image from FUN 15.  This may be considered cheating by some but I thought I was brilliant! :) 


Here's how the stamped gradient was achieved. I also take a toothpick and do a faint squiggly line so the colours meld if that makes sense before scraping.



(this pix from was another scrape, not the one above and no melding of stamping colours, but similar outcome!)  Just in case anyone is inspecting the pix that close!


Stamped the accent finger using same image and Funky Fingers Gesso.

  5. My mind is blown by the color stamping, I thought it was white stamped on gradient (like ring finger), not gradient stamped on white....
