Can't Wait For Fall - We Stamp On Sundays

This week's challenge over at Adventures In Stamping was a Fall look ' Can't wait for Fall'. I had an idea for this when it was announced this was the winner, but I thought it would be way, way too much effort to try and get a lightning bolt to look like a path going off into the distance - and I didn't have a tree image to stamp. So for the sake of my sanity I changed my idea :P
Base Coat: La Femme
Base Colour: ELF - Desert Haze
Other Colours: MUA - Shade 23
                           Essence Colour3 - A Walk In the Park
Stamping Colours: Manhattan - Lemonade
                                  Sally Hansen Insta-dri - Quick Brick
Image Plates: Bundle Monster BM04, BM316
Top Coat: Sally Hansen - Advanced Hard As Nails
 Here's a pic of the gradient before I hid most of the prettiness with the stamping :]

 Here's what I used:


I hope you guys like them! This is the first Insta-Dri I've owned. Well; I bought two, but this is the first I've tried. I got so excited for the idea of owning a red that'll stamp over anything, and I love it. I need to try them both over black, but for now it will stop my lusting for a red that stamps. Annnnnd this is by far the prettiest red I own. Slap a top coat over that sucker and it really comes to life, it looks so juicy!

I know I said I'd be good and be organised, but I'm not feeling well ( I know; it's just one thing after another right?!) but will have my birthday haul post up this week for sure =]

I hope you're all having a good weekend!
