Jenny is the host this month, and she has such a fun challenge using Acrylic Paint!
This card I made in February came to mind immediately. I couldn't wait to pull out the Brutus Monroe paper that a very sweet friend sent to me!
Here is how it all began: I used the Flowers in Bloom stamp from MFT and stamped it onto a sheet of that gorgeous patterned paper - I might mention a bit of strategy was used to optimize where the pattern would fall on the stamp.
Then, I used some white Martha Stewart acrylic paint, also mixing up a few colors by tinting the white with water color paints. It was just a matter of allowing it to dry overnight, re-stamping with Versafine ink, die-cutting and mounting it on my card base, and adding a fussy-cut sentiment from the same set.
You have to know I wasn't wasting one scrap of that gorgeous paper … here is my 'leftover' card... colored pencil over PTI Spring Moss paper.
Thanks, Jenny … and the entire CAS Mix Up team, for always making me reach, and try new things!
Happiest 4th Birthday!!!
