Good morning....
A little while back I posted a card where the background was created using acrylic paints (as shown on the card below) and this video shows two ways of using the paints

I'm really out of my comfort zone getting messy but I do like the backgrounds that have been created and, I can easily wash my hands when I'm finished! LOL

You will see these backgrounds being used over the next few months and may be even longer as I've now made at least 24!

The card below is the original one I posted on 10 July

Add a frame and a background die to the acrylic painted background, a few flowers, sentiment and a few NUVO drops etc etc and look what can be achieved

For this card I used 3 stamps by Sheena Douglass, stamped them then added clear embossing powder to give shine and dimension

I do like the dramatic background from the selection of paints used

I hope you enjoy the video and, if you have acrylic paints, to also give this technique a try

Until tomorrow....



  1. Looooove it June, Deffo going to try this. xxx

  2. Smashing, I like these cards although as you say June messy but I don't mind

  3. Great video June - it has given me some ideas to entertain the grandchildren too.!!

  4. Hi June
    Lovely background Ang great technique and video. You can't possibly risk damaging those nails by scrambling over fences on the Wisty hunt.

  5. Its certainly something ive never thought about before BUT it does give some interesting backgrounds. Theres no 'right' or 'wrong' result. As the saying goes. . . .'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder' - or something like that.
    One of the other ladies mentions doing this technique with her grandchildren, i think my grandaughter would love this IF i could drag her away from making 'slime' - yuk!

  6. That was fun to watch, June! Thank you for the video of this new technique which I can see is going to be easily addicting! Your cards are gorgeous and you have beautiful hands!! Hugs, Darnell
