Getting My Hands Dirty!!

The challenge this month at UNSTAMPABELLES is{dare to get dirty}. Create a background on your paper project using paint, glitter, ink and anything else you can think of that'll get your hands dirty!! But, remember NO STAMPS!!! (Yikes!!!) The twist, if you choose to, is to take pictures along the way while you are creating. You can see my pictures below on how I created the background on my card.

 Here's how I made the background.
Using white paint, a paper doily and a paintbrush, I created the pattern on the front of the card.

Then I used pink paint and a toothbrush and splattered the card front.
~In the Pink-diecuts/punches
~Challenges and Sweets-monochromatic
~ABC Challenge-E is for "embellishments" (ribbon, flowers, pearls)
~Dream Valley-no patterned paper
~The Squirrel and The Fox-2 or more embellishments (ribbon, flowers, pearls)
~Scribble and Scrap-anything goes
~Challenges 4 Everybody-anything goes
~Feeling Crafty-dies/punches
~One Crazy Stamper-anything goes
