Make it Mondays - Argyle Christmas Card

Happy Wednesday! I made a card using this week's Make it Mondays technique "Stamping with acrylic paint". I wanted to use my iridescent, blue paint and thought that it would look festive on a christmas card. Here it is:




Haha, a perfect background for taking the photo of a christmas card! But I had to go outside, it is so difficult to get a good shot of this shiny card. Everything is stamped with acrylic paint. First I stamped the bold argyle with blue paint onto a piece of Ocean Tides cardstock, then the lined argyle with white paint. Here is a closer look where you can see the shimmer of the blue paint:






Here is the link to the video if you'd like to try this technique. 


I hope your day is beautiful! Thanks for visiting!


Hugs and Love,
Vanessa

Love it, Vanessa! I also had "A Little Argyle" in mind for this challenge, but switched to "life" instead. Great minds think alike!!
