ABC Challenge: C is for Chevrons

It's time for another ABC Challenge and this time it's extra special because I am NOT late for this prompt! It's incredible what you can do when you are bed bound for a week. Well, more like sofa//desk/fridge bound. This week's design starts with the letter 'C' and I went for chevrons.

I really missed my neons so got my Models Own Polish for Tans Collection out. I used Malibu Pink* and Beach Bag* and stamped it with Chrome Copper. I used Bundle Monster BM-XL201 plate* and Clear Jelly Stamper* from the Hitched Meebox* (reviewed here) because ain't nobody got time for stencils! I do like neons but trying to capture the true brightness of them makes me want to bash my head aganst the wall. Repeatedly. I tried taking a picture in natural light and I am pleased to say that it somewhat worked. It's still not QUITE as bright as it is in real life but it's pretty close. It was definately worth standing outside my flat, dressed like a tramp having literally EVERY neighbour pass me by. 

I had a flashback of my univeristy days when I worked in retail and had to wear a onesie on the shopfloor to promote the new collection. Next thing I know an older woman gives me a stern look (as in, 'what a weirdo' look) then turns to her friend and says 'Awh, bless her, she came shopping in her pyjamas'...

That, times 10. As you can see, I am very dedicated to my blog to the point where concerned stares that question my sanity do not bother me!

Anyway! What do you think about my design? To see what I came up with for the previous prompt, have a look at this post. Xx

  1. Love this design especially the neon :) I have to agree the chevron stamp is so much easier than trying to place all those vinyls with a pair of tweezers x

  3. Looks great, I think you captured the colour beautifully, it's always a struggle to photograph neons!
