Acrylic Distress Background Technique Video

 Happy days
It's Frenchie video and it's Friday plus a long weekend :)
Today technique is a little messy with paint but great result. What I did on this card is on Baja Breeze card stock
  •  I apply a coat of Tan paint (one card I did 2 coat one in Vanilla let dry then another in Tan) let the paint dry 
  • emboss with a embossing folder this I use Vintage Wallpaper #120175 
  • sand with the sanding block #129367 Voila you have your Acrylic Distress Background. 
  • To finish the card I stamp the Happy Birthday (stamp set Bring on the Ckae page 142) with Chocolate Chip
  •  on the Cotton Natural ribbon #127844 
  • Punch out the Butterflies with the Elegant Butterfly Punch # 127526
I know I always say Simple but it is simple when you're having fun playing with card stock so I would say this one is simple and easy just messy a little.
Well My Friends this is it for my Friday Video (on my blog at and till tomorrow Happy Stamping!

 Both are in Baja Breeze Left one is 2 coat of paint, Vanilla then tan and on the right only tan .
 This one was on Soft Sued card stock with Vanilla Paint
