Just Us Girls: Technique Challenge

Happy Saturday!  Maria picked out the coolest technique for us to try this week.  I've never tried the acrylic distress technique, but I have to say I love the way this card turned out.   I used blue acrylic paint with Peeled Paint Ranger Distress Ink. This card was for my mum's birthday last night.  I loved that she and my nieces wanted to know how it had the variety of colors.  Here's the a link to the tutorial if you'd like to give it a try!
We'd love to see what you create!  Please stop over to the other design team blogs and have a peek!

  9. this is SO pretty! Love that rich color:) Can't wait to check out the technique.....

    of course you must have those "Let's Get Physical" stamps from MFT! They are too fun;) I'm always an enabler when it comes to buying stamps, so if you ever want someone to say "don't get those" I am **NOT** your girl! ;) Hope you are having a lovely weekend, Lynn! :)
