Artsy Wednesday: Animal print


Theme: Animal Print

I'm not really a full out glamour girl, so leopard print is a new area for me (discounting my Manic Street Preachers phase in high school). I went for muted neutrals with a very trendy neon highlight. Freehand leopard print is easier than it looks! I also managed to do the whole design in ulta3 - Aussie represent!


Base: ulta3 Earl Grey
Spots: ulta3 Cocoa Bean and Sunset Coral
Outlines: ulta3 Wild Berry

    1. It might even be faster than stamping - no wiping and scraping and waiting for your base to be completely dry ;)

  13. I like the color combo you used. I don't have the right brush to do the outlines but I saw a tutorial on how to do it and it looks super easy. Hopefully I'll get a brush soon cause I'd love to make up my own color combo!
