I had an idea in mind, it had to be shiny and it had to have diamonds and crown jewels. So I took advantage of my image stamping plates and came up with this little number:
|Summer Challenge Day 10 - Queens Diamond Jubilee|
What do ya think?
I was rather happy with this little effort.. another first for me, the flag was done using a art line brush. There's a lot of firsts doing these challenges and that's what I'm really enjoying about them. That make me think of creative designs and trying new techniques which I normally wouldn't use.
So back to the design...
Union Jack - CHECK
Jewel encrusted royal crown - CHECK
Diamonds in English flag colours - CHECK
English Rose - CHECK :)
I even love the fact that I used a colour that is called Dating a Royal (OPI)
Here are the colours I used:
OPI - Dating a Royal
OPI - Alpine White
Revlon - Red (#680)
OPI Nail Envy Base & OPI Top Coat
Here is my Union Jack. I thought it was going to be easy because whenever i see others use striping brushes, they make it look soooo easy. This too me a while...
Putting all the elements together. I used Bundle Monster Image plate BM09 for the Diamonds, BM08 for the Crown (sorry it was white on silver base, in hindsight probably not a great idea, I didn't have a gold polish opaque enough) and Konad m54 for the roses. and of course a 1.5mm blue rhinestone sitting on top of the crown.
Opps smudged my middle finer... :P
Looking forward to the next one...
(came up with two variations for this one, is that cheating?)
