Stamping with Acrylic Paint

It feels so good to slowly getting back into the groove!!  It feels very satisfying for sure!!  Today, I wanted to share with you a card I just finished making " on the fly".  I have several different supplies that I have not even cracked open yet, and I am wanting to try some different things that I intended to do all along.  One of those things was try stamping with acrylic paints.  I had bought some time last year on clearance at Michaels some Adirondack Acrylic Paints, and I initially bought them, because I knew it would be a great thing to have to cover chipboard.  So - this afternoon - I opened up these paints for the first time, and used them on my Flourish Background stamp from Hero Arts.  It is one of my favorite BG stamps!!

The colors I used are Sunshine Yellow, Red Pepper, and Sunset Orange.  I also used my new package of " Glubers" from Cosmo Cricket.  I wanted to use up some ribbon scraps, so I made a flower, and "blinged" it up with some stick pins.  My sentiment comes from Lawn Fawn - ( have I mentioned I LOVE Lawn Fawn)  :o).  In fact this card I am entering into the LawnScaping Challenge - Distressing.

Thanks for stopping by -
See you all soon!!
