Last time I did one, it occurred to me that surely I should be able to use stamping to achieve a similar effect, and I did actually try it but that was 2 years ago
So here we are, I am trying for stamped reciprocal gradient, but just with 2 colours - I think 3 was too many!!!
I used Princess Nail Lacquer Gangrene (beautiful khaki green) and Sewage (gorgeous warm grey)
I chose these 2 as a reasonable contrast to each other and also because I knew I could stamp with them.
So I did my gradient (no photos because they are never that good!) and then stamped using Dixie Plates Autumn 01. I really wanted to use an image other than just a stripe but obviously anything too complex could just end up looking messy and indistinct. I have to say, I am quite pleased with the way it turned out.
They were a bit tricky to photograph, the weather was bad, lighting was terrible and I still got annoying reflections so I resorted to matte top coat although they looked so much better glossy.
