Black And Gold Lightning Bolt, Konad Q1 Fauxnad: MLS301

Happy Saturday!

I completely forgot about this plate! Scott bought me MLS301 a month or so back as he thought the plate was so awesome. This is how unorganised I've been lately. I also only have a two day weekend this weekend, when I thought It was going to be a 4 day one; so I need to get some organisation and schedule posts, and edit photos, and catch up on my reading list yet again, and generally do all the things i've been too lazy to do all week. It doesn't help that I need a new battery for my laptop, and I won't get my first pay until the end of August *le cry*!

Base Coat: La Femme
Base Colour: Rimmel - Black Satin
Stamping Colour: Barry M - Gold Foil
Image Plate: MLS301
Top Coat: Models Own - 3 In 1
So the MLS301 plate is a fauxnad plate for Konad Q1. The only difference I've seen looking at comparisons is that the lines in MLS301 are thicker. I don't mind this so much, but when I was trying to test out all the images on paper, I sometimes had issues with what seemed like the images being too deeply engraved.

Here's the plate:

And here's the testy test on paper :]

I hope everyone's having a good start to the weekend!

  2. Love this! Stamping plates are always hit or miss with the depth of the design. I have some that don't stamp at all because it's too shallow!

  3. I have tried to do this with tape, but to stamp like this would be so much easier - mind you your placement is perfect and mine is terrible!!!!
