Adventures In Stamping: Mash 28 Over Essence Choose Me!

     Today's Sunday Stamping Challenge for the Facebook group, Adventures In Stamping, was to have someone else pick our stamping plate.  Last night I handed my hubs my basket of plates and asked him to pick a design for me to use.  He surprised me by asking me what colors I was going to use, and was really into it.  Such a good hubs.  Don't worry, I return the favor by telling him how much I love his cool car.  ;-)  He chose two flower images and a nautical star.  I laughed and told him to pick just one, because how the hell am I supposed to mix a nautical star in with flowers?
     I used Choose Me! from Essence for the base color.  This is such a pretty duo-chrome.  I included indoor and outdoor pictures so you could see the beautiful shifts in this color.

So, did my husband do a good job picking out the plate?  I think so! 


  1. so pretty - did you know that Choose me is a dupe for a super HTF OPI called Catch me in your net?

    1. I knew it was an OPI dupe but I wasn't sure on the name of it. I didn't realize it was HTF either. Good thing for dupe, eh!

  2. That's cute that he played along and tell him he did great!

    1. He gets really into me having a hobby. Well, as long as I don't drag him into the beauty stores. Lol I will pass along the compliment. Thank you!
