Thank You, Paint and Ink
I guess tonight was the night to get messy. We lost power at work this afternoon so I came home early and I took a little nap - maybe I should do that every afternoon when I get home from work - hopefully it does not affect my falling asleep tonight. It is amazing how much you can not do without power and I hate sitting around work and not being able to work - one of my busiest times - so I needed to get out of there.
My card tonight is a thank you card but I wanted to try something different - I got out my acrylic paints and painted my cardstock - I then stamped on the painted cardstock with a chalk ink from Colorbox. I kinda like how it turned out - especially the dots on the painted card front. The midweek challenge on the Operation Write Home card blog Stars and Stamps is Thank You cards in honor of Dixie - one of our shippers who recently retired from her post - now she will have all this time to make cards.
Simon Says challenge is "Anything Goes" and I will be entering my card in their challenge.
So get out and be messy and see what you can come up with - it is lots of fun.
