Hello there, readers!  The other day I realized that I haven't done any stamping in a while (too stressed, too busy) and I decided that it was time to fix that!  The warm and sunny spring weather has finally returned here in California, so I decided to pick some bright springy colors to match.


I had a heck of a time getting the color balance right... these photos were NOT cooperating!  I think it might be the spot I chose to shoot in.  I've used this backdrop before in the earlier days of the blog (here for example) quite successfully, but I think it may just bounce the light too oddly for sunny days.  Oh well... that's what I get for being to lazy to traipse outdoors to my usual picture spot.


I used my Sinful Colors Basecoat, followed by two coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Lickety-Split Lime.  I stamped using that odd leaf pattern on BM205 and China Glaze Holly-Day.  Holly-Day actually works pretty darn well for stamping over lighter colors.  I used NYC Grand Central Station as my topcoat.  I still need to do a topcoat review, don't I?  Hmm...
