Welcome to our new challenge.
I've chosen 'Acrylic Paints' as our theme. There are so many types of Acrylic Paints
and endless ways you can use them on your cards.
I love the matte feel of acrylics and the way they can be layered.
 I've listed some videos in case you need inspiration.
I do hope you'll embrace this theme and have some fun!
