Acrylic Paint Background

I love messing around with acrylic paints, and make a lot of my card backgrounds with them.

I usually thin the paint out a bit then smoosh it on the cardstock.  You can use an old credit card to move the paint around, as well as combs and other household items.  I usually just sponge mine on.

The stamp is from The Angel Company, and is stamped on glossy cardstock that has had alcohol ink applied.  I tore the edges.  I used the polka dot ribbon and the buckle to add a little interest.  This ended up being a birthday card for my brother-in-law.

Have a happy day.

Wow this is brilliant and l like the idea with the paint which l have 2 colours of and haven't used so might just give it a go myself and your image is beautiful:)x

Thanks, Sandra. Just thin it a bit with water. Not too much, just enough so it's easy to work with.
