1-Paint Stamping-Create a desired shade of paint using re-inkers and apply the paint using the foam brush on the stamp while on the acrylic block. Stamp onto your project being careful to use a down and up motion, as the paint will cause the stamp to slide.
2-Colorwashing with Pearl Paint-Squeeze Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint on to a paint tray and mix with re-inker to add color. Stamp an image on your cardstock and sponge ink around the edges of your cardstock. Paint in a crosshatch motion over the entire piece of cardstock giving it a colorwashed effect. Let dry and embellish!
3-Paint Edging-Using either type of paint mixed to the desired shade, take a round sponge, dip in the paint, and swipe the edges of your cardstock. Allow to dry before adhering to your project.
4-Paint Resist-Stamp an image with the Versamark ink pad and heat emboss with Clear powder. Next, mix the desired shade of paint for your project.

Using a Black My Legacy Writer and a ruler, draw lines over the painted surface to resemble wood grain.
