33 Day Challenge - Day 26 - Something from pinterest / your inspiration board

Wednesday, 20 November 2013

Hello!  Today the theme for the 33 Day Challenge is "Something from your pinterest/your inspiration board".  I've been meaning to have a go at an Ikat pattern manicure for ages, and had saved a few ideas to my to do list, so this was the perfect opportunity.

I started with a lime green base colour, and then added in the pattern using white, black and purple.  I'm pretty pleased how this turned out.  Moreso, because attempt number one (using yellow as the base) was such a disaster (I always forget that my favourite yellow of the moment (Barry M Limited Edition Yellow) bleeds into white, so it just didn't look as crisp with the colour contrast, as the white turned a yellowy colour).
