I was totally not going to post these, since, well...they suck. But I'd like to see my own progress and I can tell I've gotten better just in the couple days I've been playing with them!
I bought the plates M3, M71 & S10 from WowSoCool.com on Monday night. They were all out of M3 so it's shipping this week I hope! I was a little bummed since I bought it because it looked pretty easy and I really wanted to start with it.
Oh, and thanks to Jessica from Polished Lyrics, I bought the double sided stamper, which has helped me out SOOO much! I have really teeny tiny nails and I definitely need the small sized stamper.
The panda from S10 was the whole reason I bought the plate! It's so cute and I really, really wanted it. Unfortunately, Mr. Panda is very elusive and I don't think I'm up to the level where I can stamp it (yet)! Damn!!!
I had a lot of trouble picking up the stamps at first. After reading through TONS of blogs, I finally buffed the stamper down and it totally helped! Also, I was trying to use a credit card instead of the metal scraper (apparently it can scratch the plate, but it's only superficial...it doesn't mess with the image) and I found after a lot of mistakes that the metal one worked much better for me!
Okay so does anyone have any Konad tips for me? Like maybe how I can stamp that damn panda? I always seem to only pick up about 90% of the image. The top of his head between the ears never shows up! Waaa!
On other news, I totally changed my template! I wanted something more, uh, basic? How do you girlies like this?
