Digital Dozen does Paper - Day 3 - Quatrefoil wrapping paper

Day 3 and today I attempted something new on my nails.  It's not often that I do actually find new designs or techniques that I haven't tried. Again I was going through the wrapping paper we got from Costco, and one of the patterns was a red and white quatrefoil design.

I remembered seeing some Instagram posts with some quick videos showing how to create the pattern using dotting tools. So I gave it a go.

I've gotta say that I'm not completely happy with this, as I feel the design is way too big. I should have used much smaller dotting tools to get the pattern much smaller.  I also found that you need to be bloody good at using a dotting tool, particularly relating to getting an even amount of polish on the tool to get equal size dots, and being able to place those dots in the right places.  It was pretty tricky!

I really want to try this again in another colour combo, probably black and white, with much smaller dots.
