Wishing you Sunshine

Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday technique is to stamp using acrylic paint.
I've always wanted to stamp with paint so I decided to give it a try.

I used FolkArt paint in School Bus Yellow for the flowers. Sometimes when I use Papertrey stamps I get what looks like slightly darker lines on the outline of some images. On the sunflowers it kind of looks like I added a second darker color, but I didn't. I love how it looks.
I added some Melissa Frances Vintage Glass Glitter to the flower centers to jazz them up a little.
I hope you give this a try if you haven't stamped with acrylic paint before. It's fun!
