Stamping Week - Dragon Flowers

Hi Goddesses

Today's stamping mani was an experiment that I had seen other bloggers succeed with time and time again, and which ... well, I dunno, I'm not sure it worked for me.

This was a skittled base of a-England Dragon (thumb, middle, pinkie) and a-England St George, stamped with HITS Hefesto, a holographic topcoat and this stamp from DRK-B.

I have such mixed thoughts on this one, and I do think the British weather is to blame!  It looks totally different in the photos where there was actually a glimpse of sun.

I think my biggest issue is that you can't really tell the stamp is of flowers.  You can see there's a stamp, yes, but for the most part this looks like leopard print more than anything.  And I don't mind that, truly I don't, but it's not flowers .....

Overall, I think the Hefesto gives a lovely subtle effect, just a little bit too subtle possibly for me (I rarely use the word, let alone display it).

However, regardless of whether it looks how I wanted it to or not, there's one thing you can't deny - it's high on holo loveliness.

Enjoy xx :)
