Adventures In Stamping - Red

Hello :)  Yup, it's Sunday and today's theme is Over a Red Base.  I used 2 coats of Nubar Avant-Garde - a matte brownish red with a hint of copper - from their 2009 Modern Matte Collection.  Image plate was from Gals Princess set GA3 using Barielle Granite Glitter - a grayish silver metallic.  I used scotch tape to tape off the tips and added Granite Glitter.  Let's take a look at these photos :)
Before I painted the tips - I found it too boring, don't you agree?
I couldn't believe Avant-Garde had been sitting there untried !!  What a gorgeous shade !!  I actually prefer this shade glossy rather than the matte look which didn't do anything for me.  You could still purchase it from Nubar and here's the link.

What do you think?

Thank you for dropping by :)

Vicky I love the combo, the base colour is stunning, and the barielle one seems to work so well for stamping! I'm just wishing this brand was available where I live :(
