#33DC Indian - With A Sloppy Choppy Blue Gradient

Hi Goddesses

I deliberately kept today's challenge a little vague so that people had the choice of going with American Indian designs or things inspired by the country of India. I went with the latter.

The first half of this post is dedicated to the base- I was enthralled by this, so much so that I didn't stamp over it until a day later, when I did a mani based on this Sari.

This is a "sloppy, choppy" gradient, and it's achieved by doing the usual sponge method, but using oodles of polish, so that it runs a little bit.   I used China Glaze Kinetic Candy, OPI Can't Find My Czechbook and Barry M Blue Grape.   I am in love with some of the patterns it created.

For my stamping I turned to one of my new MoYou plates - this is the skull lady plate aka Artist Collection 11.   I love these big plates that are just full of interconnected designs - the possibilities are endless.  I used the bottom right hand corner (as you look at the photo).

I didn't stamp every nail cos, you know, the base, and I also didn't do full coverage stamping, as I wanted to mimic the way a sari hangs and overlaps itself.

Please make sure you're checking out the other ladies - I've discovered some more amazing blogs to follow!
