Sunday Stamping: Inspired by the 70s

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?
