Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there. My own dad passed away last year. I miss him and wish he were here. He never got to see any of my stamping, although I tried explaining it over the phone. As an engineer, he liked to know about tools, and the idea of using plates, a scraper and a stamper to effect a design on one’s nails was interesting to him. I think he was also trying to be involved in my hobbies when he asked me a million questions. I definitely miss him.
I think he’d really like what I came up with for today’s design. The theme is ‘inspired by the 70s’. The 70s had a whole range of colors and designs to choose from. I chose a tan, green, maroon and gold color scheme, with a swirly design.
The base color is OPI Did You ‘Ear About Van Gogh?. The stripes are Zoya Dree and Rescue Beauty Lounge Bruised. The plate is Mash-40 stamped with Illamasqua Swinger (this polish stamps really well).
I’m not sure how 70s this is, but it’s pretty, so I’m happy!
Here’s how it looked before the stamping:
This is the first stamping I’ve done in a few months, and I think I did well. What do you think? Is this the 70s?
