Dawn McVey's Color Challenge #1 and a Video

I was very excited to see that Dawn was starting color challenges! I decided to play along with these fun colors:

Lovin' that bedspread from Pottery Barn! Here is my card inspired by these colors...

I decided to stamp with white, acrylic paint instead of regular ink and rough up the edges with sandpaper and white paint to give it a distressed look. I also decided to do a video about stamping with acrylic paint! I liked the look of this card, so I made another one with the same design but more masculine colors. You can see the video HERE.

Supplies:
Stamp and Pearls: Hero Arts
Rub-on Greeting: Stampin' Up
White Paint: Making Memories

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Monday!
