Using Acrylic

Some friends and I have been taking turns sending each other stamped images and challenging each other to use the image on a card. It was my turn to mail out an image to the group, and this tulip wagon is what I chose to send to everyone. After a rough morning at work, I finally got a chance to calm down with some stamping and make my card. Ahhhhh, therapy!

The stamp doesn't have a name or number....sorry! Don't know about you, but I think ALL stamps should have a name. Anyway...

I incorporated the card into today's Ways to Use It Challenge on SCS, which was to use something acrylic on the card. I used an acrylic button in the upper right hand corner of the main image. I also got to use my favorite Afternoon Tea DP it!

Recipe ~
Stamps: Unknown Tulip Wagon, Papertrey Mixed Messages
Paper: Chocolate Chip, White, Afternoon Tea DP
Ink: StazOn Timber Brown, Creamy Caramel, Basic Brown, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava, White Gel Pen, Warm Grey #1 Copic
Accessories: Brown Ribbon, Clear Button, Orange Stickles (center of small flowers)
Technique: Watercoloring with ink pads
Notes: The card measures 5.25" x 5.25" square. Each DP panel is 2.5" x 2.5".

Thanks for stopping, and have a nice day. Hopefully you got to do some stamp therapy today too!
