Inspired by Nail Art (Part one)


Nail art is all the rage these days and there are so many fun designs on pinterest. This card was inspired by this nail art on my inspiration board.


Toe nails

I started by stamping and masking the single large daisy from Waffle Flower's A Bunch set. I coloured the panel with copics and then coated the whole thing with Versamark ink before embossing it with iridescent embossing powder for some sparkle. I set the flowery panel into a polaroid frame from Papertrey and added a Clearly Besotted sentiment that had a similar line weight. It felt like it needed something, so I stamped, coloured, cut (with the matching dies) and embossed two more daisies for some dimension.

Yes, there's a Nail Art Part Two post coming.....
