Penny Black and SRM Stickers and Paint


Got my fingers all painty for this card.  I do love to play with paint and stuff - but usually do not take the time to do it.  The background paper is watercolor paper which is colored with acrylic paint.  I swiped a taupe color paint over the paper and then I dabbed on orange and a lightish tealish green.  I really like the color - it is so warm.  I then stamped the Penny Black tree in dark brown Colorbox Chalk Ink.  I used a SRM Sticker to add a sentiment to the card.  I was lucky I had to trim off a little strip so my sentiment strip matched the card background.

I am entering this card in three challenges.
Paint - Simon Says Stamp and Show
Fall Card - Oozak
Square Card - Cas-ual Friday

Yeah the week end is here - it is cool here in Wisconsin - so I plan on opening up the house and getting fresh air in and doing lots of clearing/cleaning and hopefully some creating.

Love your background using acrylics... and the tree. Got that stamp sitting on a shelf staring at me waiting to be inked. You have inspired me. Thanks for entering the Oozak challenge. Hope you win!
