FiA #6 Autumn Leaves

Leaves! What the bloody hell am I gonna do with leaves? How do I get that much detail on my nails? At first I thought of doing a take on the comic POW! nails and then I thought better. Red Angel to the rescue =D

So I started with Tokidoki Savana and stamped first with RA-120 and Essence Wake Up



Then RA-116 with Essence Wanna Be your Sunshine


And lastly, RA-121 with Julep January



And one coat of Ulta X-dry to smooth it all out. It really made the colours pop!



And after clean up <3

If I were to do this again I would change one of two things: either I wouldn't use the yellow OR I would only use the maple leaf stamp (in all three colours PLUS probably a darker red as well)... but this is my first successful stamping experience! What do you think? Did I do alright?

Everyone else's is GORGEOUS too! This challenge item seriously brought out the colour creativity =D
