Where's the picnic?

Warning-this post may be attractive to ants!  I am finishing up my mini series using MASH plate 50.  In this mini series, if you have just joined me, I am showing how one design can look completely different by just changing the colors used.  I have to say, today's is my favorite.  Another warning, there are WAY too many pictures in this post as well.

I decided that I was in a vampy red mood for this last post.  I love red and I realized that it had been awhile since I had worn it.  Since we have a lot to get to, let's just get started shall we?

First up, the silly bottle shot.


Maybe I should have called this post Christmas in May?  I just thought this cool candle holder would go well with these colors.  This is Barry M Red Wine and Lilacquer Tenga and Kitsune.

I started with Red Wine.  This is a stunning cherry red jelly.  It is squishy and yummy and just the perfect red. Here are the shots.

Isn't this the most perfect red?  Notice I didn't even do an accent nail.  I wanted to show off this luscious red. Of course, after this step, I had to play right?  I then did a layer of Tenga which is a red based shimmer.  Here is that step.

Oh yeah, notice the shimmer this has become from a jelly.  Yum!  Then I stamped with MASH plate 50 and Sally Hansen Whirlwind White.  Here is that step.

Check out my perfect stamping!  I'm pretty proud of this one!  But I'm not done yet!!  I then added a layer of Kitsune which is another red shimmer color changer but in a clear base.  I then finished it off with my funky in the original Red Wine to show where we started from.  Are you ready for this?

I told you there would be a ton of pictures!  The last color changer is subtle but it softens the bright white of the stamp and adds a red shimmer to the white that you can see in certain light.  That's why I included so many different lighting situations.  I am loving how this came out!  I am super proud of myself here.  This may go in the header for the next update!

I must admit though, it does remind me of a picnic tablecloth.  Hence, the post title and ant reference.  I hope you got that subtle humor there!

This concludes my mini series using MASH plate 50.  I hope you have enjoyed seeing the variety one design can give you.  MASH plates are on sale now.  Click here to buy them.

Did you like this mini series?  Would you like to see something like this again?  I'm just trying to show that you don't need a bazillion plates to make different manis.  All you need is imagination and different colors. Let me know if you would like to see this kind of thing again.  Or if you have other ideas you'd like me to do.

Until next time people.  Any thoughts out there?
