It is week #3 over at Jingle Belles,and you have to create a Christmas card using acrylic paint.I would normally just use acrylic paint for painting chipboard so I wanted to do something I hadn't tried before.
Here is what I came up with:
I stamped the French Filligree background stamp with VersaMark Inkpad and embossed with white embossing powder. When the embossing had cooled I painted over the whole image with Adirondak Paint Dabber in Cloudy Blue then with a damp cloth wiped off the paint exposing the white embossed pattern.
The patterned paper is Baja Breeze from the Subtles Patterned Paper Stack which I inked with Crumb Cake and Chocolate Chip Ink.The greeting is from Welcome Christmas stamp set embossed in white,lastly I added the button and a jingle bell to the bow. Everything I used is from Stampin'Up except the Martha Stewart snowflake punch,the paint and bell.
Well that's my 3rd Christmas card of the year done only another 49 to go !!!!
Thanks for stopping by.
