Rattlesnakes and Remixes

Hello, Konaddicts!  Can you believe it's already August?  I am sooo tired of the hot weather so I'm desperately waiting for Fall...

Well, today's mani is Rattlesnake print.  I tried a version of this once using BM 215, but couldn't quite figure out how to get the color combination I was looking for.

This design is using an XL Plate D.  I purchased mine on eBay for about $13.

I started this with aPure Ice Jaguar.  It's a lovely, glittery gold, but it's a little sheer, so it takes several coats to make it opaque.  I decided to color my pattern using Kleancolor Coffee Addict, Maybelling Express Finish in Walnut, and Wet n Wild Black Creme.  I dotted them on the plate and mixed a little with the scraper before stamping.

I like this design, but I still have a hankering for snake print.  Look at Miss80Million's tutorial for using BM 215.

Ooo - might be time for a remix!

Tread carefully, Konaddicts!
