Zombie Apocalypse

Are you scared yet...LOL... Here we are Sunday night already....where did the weekend go??? Crazy how we get to the weekend and it's over in the blink of an eye..  Seeing that it's Sunday night and the season finale of the Walking Dead, I wanted to share with you, my card for this weeks Stampotique Challenge.  This weeks Hostess is Nellie van Leeuwen and here is what she has to say:
"What's your favorite technique to make backgrounds?  I love making backgrounds with distress ink on a craft sheet.  I use distress ink, memento, brusho's, distress stains, whatever I feel like working with. Quick and easy and a different and surprising result every time."

This was a super fun challenge for me, as creating backgrounds for my projects is my favorite part of creating.  Currently, my favorite background technique is creating with acrylic paint.  I used to be petrified of using paint, but once I embraced the medium, I haven't stopped using it.  
   For this weeks project I used cheap acrylic paint (0.33 cents a bottle) from AC Moore, and painted the base black and layer with color.  I then used a wet paper towel and dabbed of the paint, which brought some of the black through the layers.  I used Penelope, who completed my zombie themed project. I would love for you to come and join us for this week background challenge and a chance to win free product.  Thank you for stopping by and I hope to see you over at Stampotique !
