KW's 50th with a cherry on top!


Oh my gosh, how fun! Wasn't sure what I was going to do with this one, but luckily, I had taken a little trip to Michael's and picked up some acrylic paints in some super funky colors for less than a dollar each! And not only that...two of the colors were part of the challenge! Awesome Kristina - and congratulations on #50 - I just wish I could have been there from the beginning!!

I almost felt like I was back in grade school with my painting and splattering...it was so fun!!


I dipped the brush in the paint and then brushed onto my SU stamp from the hostess set Loopdie Doop. After stamping the image, I watered down the color and splattered. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. The brown was a little tougher..because I didn't have the paint color, so I used my SU reinker and my CTMH create a shade and it worked really well!! You really can create-a-shade!! lol!

I topped it off with some liquid applique from CTMH which you put under a heat gun and get a really awesome frosting effect. And then the "cherry" of a red brad!

Super fun - can't wait to see everyone else's! Thanks Kristina!!
