Painting on Cards!

Do you buy store bought cards???  I rarely if ever use store bought cards and my sweet husband will ask me to make a card on occasions that he needs to give one. This week was one of those occasions.  He doesn't like the flowery girly cards, when he gives one it must be a masculine card!!!

 Today with my Dixie Belle Paints I created this beauty!

Supplies:
Dixie Belle Paint Sea Glass
Dixie Belle Van Dyke Brown Glaze
Dixie Belle Swamp Mud Texture Medium - White

Card Base
Two Scoops = Brown Cardstock

Corrugated Cardboard

Tacky Glue
Glue Stick
Double Sided Tape
Dew Drops
Shells
 
On the Corrugated Cardboard add some Dixie Belle Swamp Mud Texture Medium - White to create a beach, let dry!!
 
On Card Base lightly paint with Dixie Belle Van Dyke Brown Glaze, let dry.
