Stamping with MM20 over dots

Hi everyone!

Today I decided to play with my cherished Messy Mansion stamping plate, MM20. A long while ago, I saw this image being used over a dotted base (I’m not sure where) and it made me want this plate!

I started with a base of Essence Upper Green Side then used a dotting tool to add random dots of Tip Top Cyan Can-Can, Grape Dance, Peach Crisp, and Walking on Sunshine, and Essence Beijos de Brazil. painted-fingertips-nail-art-essence-upper-green-side-with-random-dots-in-tip-top-peach-crisp-cyan-can-can-walking-on-sunshine-grape-dance-essence-beijos-de-brazilI actually quite liked it with just the dots as well! It was colourful and eye-catching but very simple to create.

    I love it. It looks really cool! I never would have thought of using dotting as a background but it looks amazing.

    I think it gives a hint of stained glass, I like it 🙂

    I don’t think it is too busy AT ALL. I love the stamp over the dots and feel like it quitens it a bit. It reminds me of leaves in Autumn
