Two things that I really wanted to do - (1) is the challenge of using paints - so I was excited to see that the Ways To Use It Challenge , at Splitcoaststampers.com, was using paint today. The other (2) was to make a card using Acetate - that was an earlier challenge also at Splitcoaststampers.com . Our 24th Wedding Aniversary is on Valentine's Day - I think I'll save this for my DH.
What I learned today - that once you stick something to the transparency it's stuck.
I've stamped with StazOn on the front of the card and then painted behind the word with Close To My Heart White Paint mixed with Bubblegum Re-inker. THEN I remembered I wanted to use my new Pearl Shade Paint mixed in so I scrapped part of the pink away and went over the paint with the Pearl - it gave it a slight shabby chic look. You can see in this photo how the Pearl Paint has a little shimmer to it - it doesn't show in the photo of the card - but is very shimmery in real life.
