Last year I started an art journal in a reclaimed planner. I had ripped out some of the pages to make it possible to add bulky stuff and (of course) I saved those ripped out pages. They started my background on these cards.
Pulling out various colors of acrylic paints, I swiped, dabbed and pressed using various implements (hotel key card, bubble wrap, empty tape roll, and a mystery cardboard circle). After those dried, I applied gold crackle paste through a stencil.
I'm going backwards in the SDC challenges this month and adding this to #194.
Easy, breezy cards are ready to go postal. Hooray!
