you're my brightest star

hello there!

it's been quiet on my blog this week...weird!
well that's about to change! 
today i have a card that i created for the current Runway Inspired Challenge


so FUN! and totally a challenge for me! these aren't my usual colors, and i was up for the challenge! 
i also thought to myself...hey...i'm already challenging myself, why not use some acrylic paints?! also new to me!

so i took my inspiration from the panels in the top of the shirt, and that's what i did:


i used some navy paint and quickly brushed it on to my card front. once that was dry, i used some orange and red acrylic paint to create loose 'stars'! i really like how it came out! 


i colored that little lion from Mama Elephant's Carnival Cupcakes with copics, and then popped him up over that lovely, so sweet, sentiment from Shooting Star.

what do you think? have you ever used acrylic paint? it was FUN!! 
thanks for stopping by!
enjoy!
