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!!

We ate outside on our lanai - it was beautiful outside, sunny with a great breeze. I put our tablecloth on that we got for our wedding - it was so beautiful and our plates and the colors matched perfectly!
Here are some close ups - mmm mmm good.
Now we are going to finish up the night with Gone in Sixty Seconds...ok let's ride!
I came home from work, and there Jim was - not only did he wrap the presents, but he decorated it with flower and a button - HOW CUTE, right? Uh, he's so adorable.
