Red, Yellow, and Orange Swap - Artist Trading Cards

The next theme for my Facebook ATC Group is Red, Yellow, and Orange!  Not my favorite colors - I'm more of a cool color kinda girl.  But I rallied.  Especially since I've just gotten my hands on some of Dina Wakley's Heavy Body Acrylic Paint.

I have heard and seen the reviews that absolutely rave about this paint.  My local Hobby Lobby finally stocked 6 of the 12 colors and I snatched them up with alacrity.  Everything they say about this paint is True! True! True!

It is vibrant, juicy, thick yet pliable.  It's dry time is not nearly instant like craft paint, but is a little quicker than liquitex basics.  It is absolutely wonderful.

I used Lemon and Tangerine on the background.  Then I stamped a Graphic 45 stamp in Red, using Stampabilities Pigment Ink.

While everything was drying, I stamped one of Dina's Hearts onto a piece of red cardstock - the picture makes it look kind of purple-ish, but the actual color is a deep red.  I cut that out and cut out a little hand-written sentiment.  I glued it all down and then used Fired Brick Distress Ink to color the white paper of the sentiment.

I did say that for the Facebook group, I only have to make 3 cards.  That's true.  But I made 4 because my friend really wanted one, so I went a head and made her an extra.  It's nice to have your work loved and appreciated!
