JUGS #75 & Totally Hues #3
Hello! It's Papertrey release day and my day off! Woo hoo! ;-D I had a great deal of fun in my craft room making this card. Just Us Girls' challenge this week was to use the "acrylic smash" technique. Not only had I never tried this technique, I had never even heard of it! So of course I had to try it! It involves putting acrylic paint on the back of a stamped piece of acetate card stock, and wasn't hard at all, although it was a teeny bit messy and there's room for improvement. :-) I used the color palette from Heather Pulvirenti's Totally Hues #3 challenge because a) I loved it, and b) it references PTI colors, so I had the exact right ones. I can see myself using this color combo again, for sure.
Did you see what stamp set I used on the acetate? Yep, that's 2010's CHA exclusive set, Four of a Kind! After forever being too late to nab the ones that go on sale on the PTI forum from time to time, I lucked out--Lisa from Oregon (West Coast) put her items up at night, and I was the first person to PM her about this set! I will NOT let this year's CHA go by without a proxy shopper!
