Stamping with Suedes

Friday, June 4, 2010
Good afternoon dear reader!

How are you all doing on this sunny friday? I'm feeling kind of blah, having a headache but luckily I've had all my appointments for today so I can relax now. A couple of days ago I stamped with a suede polish for the first time and I really liked the result. I never thought of stamping with suedes because of the drying time but yes, it is possible!

China Glaze Secret Peri-Wink-Le OPI Russian Navy Suede Konad Stamping with Suede Polishes

Suede Stamping in sunlight

As my base colour I chose China Glaze - Secret Peri-Wink-Le from the Operation Colour Collection (fall 2008). It's a dusty periwinkle blue creme that applied fine. I'm wearing three coats in the picture. For stamping I pulled out one of OPI's suedes: Russian Navy, a gorgeous shimmery navy blue. Suedes dry very fast so you have to be quick while working with these. I'm really liking the effect of stamping with a suede, it definitely brings a twist to the normal Konad designs. I used plate M70, I love the full plate flower design.

Have a good start of your weekend!
Michelle

Leuk! Denk dat ik veruschka uit de kast trek om op te stempelen. Ik vind de 2 kleuren blauw mooi bij elkaar in jouw creatie :D

Michelle said...

Thanks Dappieeeee! <3

Michelle said...

Thanks! It is a little darker in real life but Orly Cashmere Cardigan has a little more purple in it than this one, if you know what I mean. :)

Michelle said...

Thanks!

Michelle said...

Thanks! I was pretty suprised, didn't know it would look this nice. :)

Michelle said...

Thank you! I bet you'll be stunned ;)

Michelle said...

Thanks! :D

Michelle said...

I'm curious how that works out so please let me know! I think suedes stamp better than mattes but I'm not sure - don't know why I think that. I'll try with La Paz matte. :D

Michelle said...

Thanks! And try, try, try! You'll get quicker :)

Michelle said...

Thanks Susie!

Michelle said...

Me too, I thought they'd dry too fast! But it worked great <3

Michelle said...

Haha thanks! I'm such an enabler ;) nah but I own the six suedes and they're all gorgeous, the only thing I want now is Aragon suede <3

Michelle said...

Hahaha thanks Brooke! <3 I was the same about Secret Peri-Wink-Le and I definitley don't regret it getting it in my last TD order.

Michelle said...

Dankjewel! Ik heb een keer geprobeerd om met Veruschka te stempelen maar die was niet echt heel zichtbaar. Ben benieuwd naar jouw creatie, misschien had ik een andere kleur eronder moeten gebruiken!
