'Sup Girly? (WT150)

Today's challenge looked like fun! I do not have a ton of acrylic paints, but I did have a few colors from various projects I have done in the past. I decided to use one that was very similar to Wild Wasabi (one of SU current "in color" colors). I absolutely LOVE this color. I mixed it with white on a plastic plate and then pressed a quarter sheet of acetate into it. I was expecting to like the non painted side, but I ended up preferring the painted side. I colored a bella image (thanks K2) and designed the card around her. The base of the card is actually whisper white although it is hard to see that in this photo.

Stamps: Beachabella, Karen Foster Design Snap Stamps - Tiny Casual Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi Ink: Timber Brown Staz On Accessories: Crayola colored pencils, gamsol, blending stumps, Singer sewing machine, brown thread, SU oval punches, Taupe ribbon (5/8ths and 3/8ths inch), pop dots, redline tape, acetate, acrylic paints(green and white), stickles
