Cas Mix Up Challenge

Hello and welcome to March!
Happy St David's Day to those who celebrate, my thoughts are with everyone in Wales (and the rest of the UK) who have lost their homes due to the awful floods.
I just wish the rain would stop.

So of course it's the start of a new challenge at the
CAS Mix Up 

We are also celebrating our 4th Birthday!!!

Jenny is hosting a fabulous challenge for us- Use Acrylic Paint
She has also provided us with some terrific video tutorial links explaining various processes and ideas.
Now I confess that I craft when inspiration takes me and like to get ahead with DT work if I can so I hadn't watched those videos when I made my cards but you know me... I just like to go with whatever is inside my head

I stamped some bare winter trees in versafine black ink onto cardstock and then using 2 shades of green acrylic paint and a fan brush, I randomly pounced the paint over the trees

I tell 'ya... Anyone can do this and you don't even need a paint brush, you could do this with a sponge. The result really pleased me and the technique means I can use a winter stamp for all seasons which is an added bonus

The acrylic paint adds texture when it's undiluted and of course you could use any colour.
So there you have it, my clean and simple acrylic paint card

I can't wait to see what you all come up with... Check out the super cards from the team and our lovely Guest Designer

Happy crafting - Happy Spring!
