The Digit-al Dozen does ... FESTIVENESS - Abstract Christmas Wreath

Hi Goddesses

Wow, I'm a little bit overwhelmed with yesterday's manis - there was so much awesome out there from everyone in the group. Make sure you take the time to click on the links at the bottom of the post - there is some RIDICULOUS talent in this group!

Today's mani started life as a tutorial for a Splodgerama, albeit in Christmas colours.  Accidentally, I stamped over it, and I much preferred that version, so that's what you're getting today, and we'll do the tutorial at some point in the next couple of weeks.

I'm not going to go into too much detail as that would ruin the tutorial, but a Splodgerama basically involves randomly sponging colours on your nail.  As to which colours I used -

base - OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, which is a mannequin shade on me
greens - Bettina Green, Revlon Toad and CG Glittering Garland
reds - CG Ruby Pumps and CG Mommy Kissing Santa (I themed the polishes !!!  lol)

Here's a shot of how the Splodgerama looked once it was done.

I then stamped using my Barry M gold foil, and various stamping plates.  The fabulous Christmas word puzzle you see on the thumb and middle finger is from MJ 7 which you can buy from My Online Shop.

The other words come from Dashica plate Dash11 which has  all sorts of useful slogans on it.

So, quite accidentally, I ended up with something really kinda wonderful.  More than any of the other manis I've done, this one really speaks Christmas to me.

Enjoy - and don't forget to check out my more talented friends !!!
