Review: Stamping Plate

    Last week I got a fun package full of goodies from Born Pretty Store! One of the items I received was this awesome stamping plate.

   I loved the design on this one. It reminded me of a mix between henna and paisley. Ever since about 9th grade I've been in love with traditional henna. The flowy, detailed designs are so amazing!

   I'm not an expert stamper, so I made several attempts on a couple of my fingers, but that's all user error. I haven't stamped in a long time so I'm really out of practice! There were a few spots on the stamping plate where the design wasn't fully etched, but with such a detailed design that has several super thin lines, that's to be expected. The polish went into all the little crevasses and come out great. Overall it worked really well!

   To make the stamping so colorful, I used this really neat technique I learned over at the Lacquered Lawyer. It's called reverse stamping. I like how it lets you spice up a stamp.
