Made another card for Make It Monday ~ Make Your Own Paint. Ashley used Gesso, added re-inkers in different colors and painted onto canvas gift bags, which came out so adorable! I didn't have any Gesso, in fact, I've never heard of it before, BUT, I certainly couldn't let a MIM Challenge go by without trying, right? I saw that someone used Acrylic Paint and re-inkers, so I thought I would follow along that route :) I like the clumpy texture it created.
I die cut a Butterfly and used a brass stencil (used to emboss with a light box~~remember those?). After mixing glimmery blue ink with white acrylic paint, I then brushed it onto sections of the butterfly. The purple is water color paint. I used double sided tape and popped the butterfly onto the tilted violet wood grain embossed panel and glued that onto the green (paint chip from Lowe's) panel.
