CCEE1520 - Acrylics and Inks

This week CCEE Stampers challenge hostess asked us to get out our acrylics and ink.  She wanted us to create a background using inks, but no stamps or embossing folders.  In addition, she wanted something acrylic on our cards/projects.  I decided to try a technique I had seen on Splitcoaststampers, Faux Barn Board, which uses acrylic paint, re-inker, and white glue.  The panel at the top of my card is the result.  Am I being immodest if I say I like it?


Check out the creations by the rest of the team by visiting the CCEE Stampers blog.

Great job on that faux barn wood. I have never been that successful at that technique.

Oh gosh, Lois -if that was the first time you've tried faux barn board -well, all I can say is that it was at least my third attempt if not my fourth (trying all sorts of different glues and types of white acrylic) before I used any of it on a card. Yours looks super - and goes so well with the antique look of the clock face.
