I really like your illustration, Amy. It's so well drawn, and I like the patterns and color scheme.

Nice! I love it! Good job!

Amy - this is so perfect for both challenges! I love how you've achieved that lacquered look on the nails. The blue background with the floral pattern gives it a nice feminine touch along with the pretty border. I like the tones of the red and blue as well! Happy 4th:>

i looked at this yesterday when u 1st posted it and thought it was great and now im looking at it again and still think so, but i'm sitting here in anticapation waiting for that lush red drop of nail polish to splash down on that bare nail. hope ur 4th was a good 1

Super illustration! The hands are drawn so expertly! And I really like the "frame" around the piece!

so original and lovely as always.

Geninne said...

WOW Amy, this is beautiful! I love how you managed to merge both IF with IMT...very clever :-)
Thanks for your kind word on my blog, they're always appreciated...and yes, I used masking fuid to do all the white elements on the illo...I thought I'd retain my sanity this way :-) I'm loving this masking fluid thing, saves lots of frustration when doing detailed work. I'm glad you liked it. I LOVED yours!

great idea- stick nail polish is no fun though! Good job on rendering the nail polish-!

Franfou said...

I missed that one ! great work Amy !

yukoala said...

Fantastic work!
I especially like the part that the thick red nail polish is just dropping on the bare nail.
It must be really sticky for a while.

Pickledog said...

Ravishing Red, or is it Sticky Candy Apple Red? I love the floral background, and the Sticky Brand logo.

untamechildofnature said...

Red is my favourite color but not my choice of color on the nail polish. Nice piece!
