Firstly let me apologise for the bad lighting in these photos. We are staying at Dunc's parents who have a beautiful home, but one without much natural light (especially in the Winter).
So, I started off by getting everyone to do as many thumbprints as they could onto a sheet of ordinary A4 paper. As Melody is 5 months old, she got a bit of help from me(!). We used a brown dye based inkpad.
I then added a small drop of red nail varnish onto each thumbprint and left to dry.
And there you have it! I have been wanting to try these ever since seeing them all over Pinterest last year - and the end results are MUCH netter than my shoddy photos show... The possibilities for thumbprint animals are endless!
Merry Christmas!! xx
