Finally, Something to Share...

I finally got around to finishing my entry for this month's paint challenge over at Sarah's blog, INKURABLE STAMPERS.   Make sure you check out her beautiful sample on her blog, too.




I started by painting a Collections chipboard shape with a base colour of pale beige (Kaiser acrylic paint) then adding some veridian (Reeves acrylic paint) to the edges.    I then used various stamps (Darkroom Door's Lovebirds, Gothic Arches, Wildflowers Vol 1, Flourish b'ground stamp)  Delish clear stamps (tiny script), Victoria's Secret (alphabet), Catslife Press (a little bird...), all stamped with Archival ink (jet black)overlapping the images with MM's sea foam glaze, and using some bubble wrap and white acrylic paint.      For the sentiment, I stamped the individual letters (Etcetera Circa 1937 foam stamps) with black acrylic paint onto some kraft coloured card, trimmed the letters with some decorative scissors,  and when dried, I covered them with DM and stuck them on with a mix of ds tape and foam tape.     I added the red paper flower, a flower cut out of a playing card (using an Alterations die) and a brad, all covered with a touch of diamond Stickles. 





   There's still a few days left to join in, so if you get the chance, why not have a bit of a  messy play with some paint, and don't forget to use at least one stamp, and enter this great challenge for a chance to win some fab prizes : )    
 Now, I'd better get a move-on and join in with Sandie's theme for this month also : )
