Hi guys!

Here's my challenge. It involves creating a puzzle background with stamps and stamping a focal image onto your project with acrylic paint.


More details are in my blog post.

Looks like Pug's sample has a problem. I'll try to link it.

I love the puzzle effect, LeighAnn!

I was trying to figure out what it had to do with stamping with acrylic paint, and then I figured they're actually not related? Am I right - the puzzle technique and the stamping with paint are two different requirements which happen to be in the same challenge?

You are right Christin! The two are totally separate. Although, you could stamp your puzzle piece with the acrylic paint IF you wanted too.

Daria, I got your PM about editing the name, thanks for the catch on that! I will edit it when it allows me too. I haven't been able to reply to my PMs today or edit my blog. I will try again a little later.

LeighAnn, I'm almost done with my card. I thought I was done, and then I remembered I needed to stamp something with acrylic paint. I love playing with paint, and it's been such a long time since I've done it.

Now, I'm waiting for it to dry. I'll probably wait overnight because I'm notorious for ruining things at the last minute checking to see if it's dry or not,and it's not. I usually paint on a piece of scrap paper. When that's dry, my good piece is dry too; but I forgot to do that this time.

I had fun with the puzzle background too. I can't wait to post my card! I never finish a challenge on the first day.

That's a really clever trick, Daria - painting on scrap paper so you can see if THAT'S dry.

Ellen, I love the colors of your painted puzzler card. It looks like wonderful tile work.

I did it! I don't know what makes me happier--having finished a challenge or having successfully posted to the gallery! The latter was the hardest part.

Here's my card.

This was lots of fun. I added a twist; I mounted my pieces on Sookwang tape and put Glitter Ritz on the exposed tape between and around the pieces. I've never used Glitter Ritz before although I've seen if many times--love it's soft, velvet look. Still I was a bit surprised at how understated the white micro-fine glitter is. There's a soft shimmer if you look for it. LOL.

The hardest part was adding the acrylic piece. I had fun making some pieces, but I didn't want to put them on my background which I already loved. LOL. However, I finally found a way to do it.

BTW, the color of the Peeled Paint Distress Marker is nothing like the color of the Peeled Paint Ink Pad. I know Tim warned about that, but I still was sad not to have a marker that was more like the color of ink I use the most often.

LeighAnn, thank you for a wonderful challenge.

Great cards, EllenPea and djc!!!! So glad you were able to get them uploaded today, I've been too afraid to try it!

EllenPea, love the virbant blue and green! Great idea stamping a whole 12x12. Lots of arrangements and other projects you could do with the leftovers

Daria, I loved your poinsettia card! I like the sublte shimmer to it, that's such a nice addition. I like how the ornament is more of a vibrant green than the leaves on your card. It really makes it stand out!

Here is my Valentine Card for this challenge. The background was really fun to make (I think I forgot to say I colored it with distress ink.

The stamping with paint was new to me, and it was quite a challenge at first, but I think I got the hang of it once I used a makeup sponge and practiced.

Thanks so much for the creative challenge!

Well this is new

Heidi, I'm trying to view your card and it keeps bringing up other cards. That aren't even by you or related to the challenge!?! how strange! I will try and check it a little later.

I have found (and the same thing with the CHA challenges last month) that you have to click on the picture, not the title. Otherwise you go straight to the entire Two peas gallery.

Oy, this one was a bit of a nightmare for me...not because of the challenge itself but because of my own lack of forethought, anyway, it's finally done and up for view and a little laugh at my stupidity if you are in need of a giggle.

Like Gardencat, I too found this was definitely a challenge for me too.

Thanks Leigh Ann for pushing us with this one! ]

LeighAnn I have never done anything with acrylic paints ON my stamps before and so this is a newbie questions----I am assuming that the acrylic paint does not hurt the stamp (rubber or clear) right? and how do I clean the stamp off after I am finish stamping with acrylic paint? Do I just use soap and water, b/c I doubt you use stamp cleaner to clean it off.....this is me just guessing though....

Melissa. Craftpaint will not damage your stamps. I keep a container of water handy & rinse my stamps immediately after I load & stamp. You don't have to do it super fast, but don't let the paint dry on the stamp. Difficult, but not impossible, to get dried paint off.

Craftpaint as ink will do everything an ink does & you can customize your colors. Depending on the 'open time' of your paint (how long it takes to dry), you may even be able to use your EPs.

Note! I'm refering to pre-mixed bottle paints like Delta, DecoArt, etc. Dimensional paints like Duncan's will also work with stamps, but may require employing different techniques.

Sorry I'm just now getting around to seeing the latest, my internet has been down for the past 2 days.

GardenCat, you went above and beyond for this! I have a sizzix die that creates a puzzle effect but didnt even consider using that! Now, I'm gonna have to try that!

Marshia, love the way you did yours on a diagonal, very cool! When I was looking at your gallery I thought you had done 2 cards. (the other being from the little known consequences challenge) except I forgot about my own requirement for the focal image stamping.

Melissa, acrylic paint will not damage your stamps. Daniel, gave some good pointers. I have had issues getting acrylic paint off of a red rubber stamp before. I think it was because it has lots of grooves and curves to it. I find it a little easier to get the paint off of acrylic stamps since theyre flexible.

Here is my card for your challenge. Hadn't used acrylic paint in a very long time and was surprised the results came out as well as they did. Thanks for the challenge, I really enjoyed this one. Posted on your blog\

Nice job, Ann.

Might just tackle doing a bit today for this challenge. Compared to some others, it's pretty simple far as what's needed.

Gonna review the requirements before I start.

This was very labor intensive because I cut my background into small pieces and had to glue them all down! I should have cut bigger pieces! LOL! I stamped the pear using stains and then stamped over it using rose acrylic ink to give it interest.

Here is my card. The paint took a long time to dry and you had to use it sparingly to be able to see the actual image. I also wish I had used a darker paint, but only had a light pink/peachy acrylic paint left over from my daughter's valentine's holder project. I love the vintage image I used of the woman. It is the perfect card for cutting into pieces. I did puzzle strips so you could see the woman clearly. The clock was fun image to use as well. Great challenge. I had fun with this one.

Here's my card----as I say in my description, this was hard for me--a true challenge! Not sure why, but I did still enjoy it!

puzzle and white challenge

I have never stamped with acrylic paint and I found it to be a little bit messier than regular ink pads---but it's probably the way I was applying it to the stamp. But I was able to do it and felt so much of an accomplishment (at least for me) after I did stamp with the paint!

Thank you for hosting LeighAnn!
