The Digital Dozen Does Story Genres: Mystery

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does story genres and today I have some nails for the crime/mystery genre! So far this week, I’ve done romance, fantasy, and horror. I started running out of ideas after those three, but a little brainstorming made me think of a good old detective novel!

I used black and a little white acrylic paint for the magnifying glass and silhouette. For the fingerprints, I just used a little red stamping polish from Born Pretty Store and ‘stamped’ it over with my fingers. Perfect bloody fingerprints!

My parents liked listening to audio books when driving long distances, and more often than not they’d select an Agatha Christie mystery.
