Getting Messy with Paint Stamps and Nathalie Kalbach

Hi there, so glad you stopped in today! The design team is hopping for another special time this week, we are getting messy! If you are just getting started in this hop and want to see more just hop on over to the Stampendous blog and look over all the posts this week with the same banner as I have above. Oh and there are prizes, so comment on all the blog for Getting Messy!

My project today is a card trio. I've been wanted to create with this monoprint paper for months, it's from my premade stash and then I can start right in adding the stamping in layers.

My supplies were:

NKCSR04 Cling Fiesta Stamps Set
NKCSR06 Cling Marks Stamps Set
CP475 Creative Palette Rectangles
MPW811 Mixed Media White Paper
SSH57 Jumbo Perfectly Clear Acrylic Stamp Handle

Colorbox® Caliente, Glacier Lake, Frost White Ink by Clearsnap
Paint by DecoArt®
Acrylic Paint Markers Liquitex® (Black and White)
Liner pens by various companies
washi tape by Little B®
Glue by Tombow®
Die cut letters

There really isn't any instructions that can be made, each one being different and it was all fun play for me, so I'll just share some pictures of each card for some interest.
