This month, our swap group challenge was to use either inks or paints. I started off trying to follow a tutorial using Distress Ink refills but I didn't have the correct paper for it and I wasn't happy with the result.
I then pulled out my Gelli plate, acrylic paints and some Fiskars Texture Plates that I haven't used for a long time. I was happier with this background. I made a number of backgrounds which was just as well as when I constructed the card, it looked good close up but the details got lost when I stepped back from it.
The next card that I put together I used black on top of the background which was a much better contrast.
I used three colours of acrylic paints. The dies are some Spellbinders ones that I bought some time ago (and were still unopened). I added some black buttons as well as a sentiment which I matted with black cardstock.
