Sponging and Bleaching Background

 Back again with another acrylic paint background.  This time the acrylic paints were applied to card stock using wadded up toilet tissue.  Yes, that is correct, toilet paper.  I sponged on some subtle peach and mauve colors and then added gold paint as the final layer.  Applying the paint in this way adds color AND texture to the piece and makes the paper appear to be handmade.  The angel was black heat embossed on black card stock and bleached to lighten the interior of the image.  MS corner punching and a black card stock layer and then a kraft card blank.  This card will be entered in the Tutorial Time challenge on Speedy TV/MFP with the theme of using acrylic paints and in Nutcrafters Challenge Paula Holifield Crafts,  and Stampavie because it uses kraft paper/card stock.  Whimsical Designs is calling for a Mixed Media project.   Stop by again soon!
