Hello Clear Scraps friends! Jennifer here on the blog today with a summer themed card and tutorial! I know I'm ready for some warm weather and creating this card has me dreaming of summer fun!
As always, coloring acrylic is easy with a light coat of alcohol ink. With my ink applicator,
I used Ranger Alcohol ink in Butterscotch to cover each acrylic piece. One of the nice thing is that it dries very quickly!
I secured my Mascil to the top portion of the card (the one with the scalloped edge) with a few pieces of washi tape. This ensures your Mascil stays in place while applying your medium.
I then applied an even amount of texture paste....here I used Heidi Swapp's Metallic Texture Paste in Blue.
Here is a close up of the final effect! The texture paint does take a bit to dry so make sure you allow plenty of time. Also, note that not every circle is perfect...and that's ok! You can apply as much or as little as you see fit.
After allowing the paste to dry, I then embellished my card by adding patterned paper and coordinating die cuts and stickers!
On the inside of my card, I adhered a piece of woodgrain print paper with Beacon 3 in 1 Craft Glue (the best for acrylic!). I then stamped a sentiment as well as added additional embellishments.
