I did think about lead-lighting or reverse stamping, but in the end I went with something a whole lot quicker and easier, and I really liked the way it turned out.
I did some colourful stamping with Kleancolor Metallic Purple, Pink and Jungle. I started with a coat of Nails Inc Soho Silver which last time seemed to prevent the Kleancolors from staining, I hope it has worked this time too! Then I stamped the small butterflies from Loja BBF 19, once with each colour, although really I just used the plate to get the colours on my nail (and yes, I could have just painted it on but I like stamping!)
Then I used Loja BBF 46 and Colour Alike Kind of Black over the colourful base.
