PTI Make It Monday #32: Stamping with Acrylic Paint

This week's PTI Make It Monday is Stamping with Acrylic Paint. This was definitely a stretch for me.  I've never used acrylic paint other than as a kid.  I bought some paints years ago and fortunately it is still good.  My color combo for the card was dictated by the paint colors i have.  I used all three colors I have but am already thinking of doing a monochromatic card as well.

I used the first stamp set to come to mind and that was Grunge Me.  The paint colors I used are Huckleberry, Creamsicle and Cherry.  Cherry was very close to PTI Berry Sorbet so I used the cardstock as a layer for my panel that i stamped with the acrylic paint.  I have to admit that i wasn't sure where i was going with the card when i started. I then used Ad Sense dies for additional layers.  Last I cut out the guitar from a|s Rock Star and added a sentiment from the same set. In the end I like how it turned out.
