paint by number challenge

Are you as excited about all of the new products that are being announced that will be for sale soon at Papertrey Ink? Exclusive dies, impression plates, 100% wool felt, and now acrylic paint in the Papertrey exclusive colors? Can you stand it?

And, yes, it's true - Papertrey Ink will be at the Summer CHA Super Show! I had a blast being a part of our debut at the Super Show in Orlando last year and it was wonderful to meet so many of you in person! I can't wait to be there again this summer - I hope that you are making plans to come!



Here's my card for the paint by number challenge. I used the N-S palette from my online name "pinefeather". I think the past couple of weeks have definitely had a color challenge theme for me. It has been inspiring to pull colors that I don't normally reach for to work with. It's a goal for me this year to participate and to continue challenging myself in this way.

I did most of my stamping with white acrylic paint  on my card. I really enjoy using paint as a medium to stamp with. I love the rustic look and texture that it adds to my projects. And don't just limit yourself to stamping. Get out your brush and paint up your cards, containers and trims for your projects. The possibilities are endless.


here's just a few projects and tutorials I have done that include using acrylic paint to get ideas going for your projects with paint...
