No Stamp Allowed

Hello Everyone,

For today I am writing on behalf of Make My Monday challenge blog. We have quite a wonderful challenge this week: Stamp with anything BUT a stamp. Here is my card for tonight. Enjoy!

Black makes these colors pop! Just a bit of acrylic paint and then
stamping the paint with the bottom of the bottle to create the circles.
This weeks challenge: Stamp with anything BUT a stamp

The white 'friend' sentiment also pops
 off the black sentiment.
Tons of visual and actual texture. Overheating the acrylic paint till
it bubbled created fantastic dimension however
 did not make for a great smell throughout
the house.
So this is how my card rolled out... ugh... Several months ago I went to a spare parts consignment shop and found this amazing chevron cylinder, which I thought would make a great stamp.. Just simply roll it in ink/paint add to paper and there is my perfect pattern. Well in reality all I got were lines.. Still cool, but not what I was after. I finally smooched all the paint I had left on this black paper and  (more out of frustration then creativity) stamped a circle using the paint bottle I had on hand. And there we are; not too bad I think. 

I do hope you can join us at Make My Monday this week.. Who knows an object in your house could become your favorite stamp! Look around and see what you can find and then stamp!

Take care all and thank you so much for stopping by.. 

All the best,
Shawna

Loving this style of card. The background techniques and colours are just fabulous. You are right the black Hi and the White friend really do pop. Good idea about heating the paint for more texture x
