Our guest Muse this week is Marcie Sharp. Her card offered quite a challenge. Her amazing background is built from a smattering of acrylics. I don’t own any acrylics so I pulled out a product I haven’t used in ages… my Distress paints. The initial smooshing was beautiful! I forgot how fun Distress paints can be! But to stay within the spirit of Marcie’s card, I distressed the edges of my panel with black soot and vintage photo. (I don’t own either color in Distress Paint so I thought Distress Ink would be the next best option.) The end result is clearly interesting.
I die cut a neon orange “hello” but the color was too much, so I layered a bronze “hello” over the orange. Also, I couldn’t help myself, I had to add sequins and beads.
Thanks Marcie! This was truly a challenging challenge!
