Don't know about you, but I haven't done much today - followed a couple of blog hops and did the pink stamper challenge that I posted earlier. And, figured I should work on the jingle belles card challenge - doubt I'll manage to keep up with all of them for the year but I really want to try!
The challenge this week was to use acrylic paint in some way. I have a drawer full of acrylic paint - bought it all when I was really into the making memories foam stamps (still have those by the way). Never really thought about other ways to use it so I just started playing around this afternoon to see what I could do. The card I made uses nothing but paper, paint, glitter and one flat back pearl from basic grey.
I created the lettering by using a CHALK TEMPLATE (an oldie from Fairytale Creations that I have had for YEARS) with a metallic acrylic paint called "dark patina". While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled it with the glitter. I tore my patterned paper and used just a quick swash of paint along the top edge. The snowy corner with the pine trees is a cut from the Santa's Workshop collection at SVGCUTS.com. I used my patina colored acrylic on the trees and added some glitter. Then I took some white acrylic and dabbed it on the snowy area and again sprinkled it with the glitter. The snowflake is from the same SVGCUTS collection and is painted with white acrylic, sprinkled with glitter and then I adhered the pearl in the middle. The snowflake is mounted on a foam dot.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
