Make-it-Monday, #32

This week's Papertrey Ink  Make-it- Monday Challenge, #32  is stamping with acrylic paint. Well, I have recently accumulated a few new bottles of paint due to some projects that I am working on for my son's and daughter's rooms. (Those projects will be posted on the blog soon). So it was rather quick to make this card. Since I really liked my husband's grunge birthday card, I thought, why not make a girly one. Plus, acrylic paint screams messy and that is exactly what grunge is. Instead of the vellum stamped sentiment, I cut strips of stamper's select white cardstock and applied 1/4inch scor tape on top (that was a little harder than I thought it would be) and sprinkled with Martha Stewart coarse glitter. I popped it up with foam adhesive.

Here is the guitar I die cut and stamped with True Black ink. I popped it up with foam adhesive too.

This was my first attempt at stamping with acrylic paints. It is definitely a challenge to make sure that your stamp is covered evenly with paint. Unfortunately you cannot stamp off an image for a lighter image to get a faded effect. If you are going for the grungy look, then acrylic paints are the way to go. I will definitely use this technique again.


  1. This set looks great with the acrylic paint, Deb! Fabulous!

  3. That was a great way to use the paint!


Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving some kind words. They brighten my day!
