30 Days of Colour challenge: Nail art with double processed stamping and tutorial "Illusive pattern"


Hello dear readers, today I want to show you nail art created using double processed stamping. This was a new for me technique and I was really eager to try it as a part of 30 Days of Colour challenge. This manicure also complies with a Pattern prompt for #OMD3 challenge, because it combines two different patterns and just to make it even more interesting I used again multicolor stamping. It was a bit challenging in the beginning to learn double processed stamping, but I end up liking it a lot and even made a short video tutorial for you. Also my accent nail has simple double stamping and on macros you can easily see how different it's from double processed stamping. The bottom line for successful double processed stamping: first pick up with your stamper front image which has tiny lines and only after that pick up background image with much larger areas. You have to be pretty quick and maybe experiment to find best image combo. If you change order double processed stamping will not work, you will end up with most of you image sticking to the stamping plate. If you have any questions about double processed stamping let me know in the comments and I will be happy to answer.
