Playing With Acrylic Paint

Happy Monday everyone.

The latest challenge at Jingle Belles is 'use, practice, create... and jingle!' with acrylic paint. I haven't used acrylic paints on a card before, but I enjoyed playing. Here's what I came up with.


I only have this one acrylic paint from Heidi Swapp. I stamped the Hero Arts snowflake and embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I painted the cardstock with the acrylic paint. I made the mistake of drying it with a heat gun before wiping the paint off the embossed image, so ended up having to scrape bits of paint off, LOL. Next I inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink, matted it, added some twine and a label and there you have it.

Thanks for looking.

You did a great job with the paint. I love the colors you used. I bet it is weird for you to make snow image cards when it is summer weather there. LOL!
