Techniques - Adirondack Acrylic Paint Backgrounds
Adirondack Acrylic Paint Daubers make fabulous quick and easy backgrounds and their colours are beautifully vibrant. They dry incredibly quickly too. For making backgrounds there are 2 different methods, simply drag the sponge on the bottle across your card in parallel lines and the other you make little random "splotches" on your tag. They look like a mess until you overstamp them. I stamp images using Brilliance Black. This technique is fabulous for 10 minute cards.
Hope you have a good week. We are back to winter in Cape Town with typical wet, cold and windy weather.
