Double Stamp, French Tip & Traffic Jam

So I recently saw on a blog (and of course, I can't find it now) where they did a double stamp.  I really liked the look of it, so I decided to give it a try.  I started with one coat of China Glaze Traffic Jam.  I love this polish. It is a beautiful raspberry creme.  Its lovely and so pretty alone :)  Next I used the cheetah stamp with Ulta Scene Steel-er.  This polish is beyond amazing for stamping and I would highly recommend it for anyone who loves to stamp with silver polish.  Once that was dry I stamped again with Orly Liquid Vinyl.  I finished the whole look with free-handed french tips.  This was the first time that I tried to free hand a french tip, and I'm pretty proud of the way that they turned out.
Taken inside with the flash.

Without flash. 

Here is the sweater I wore with my nails.  It matched the color :)
So as you can see my pictures are not the best.  There really isn't a color accurate photo, but I'm sure that you can find much better swatch of Traffic Jam on other blogs.  Overall, I liked this.  However, it was a little much for me.  I also tested (on paper) with Royal Cloak and actually liked the look of that better.  So maybe next time.  So what do you think?  Do you think there is any other stamp patterns that would look good double stamped?

I have just started into the realm of the double stamp-its so hard to pick colors that will show up and still look good. This is really a great mani! Am so loving your funky french-free hand is always better in my opinion. Way to go!

@Fingers: Thanks! I was really happy with the way that this whole mani came out. I can see what you mean about the color combination being an issue. I guess practice makes perfect.
