Got creative w/ acryllic shapes & linen in cuttlebug! With some paint too!

PAINTED the } here.
dry embossed the { and the linen background. I then painted the { with brown paint, wiped off what wasn't in the dot recessed area...then painted yellow!

Painted brown, then wiped off...then painted orange, the brown didn't pop too much so i hit the top w/ stazon brown...LOVE IT! See the dry embossed swirly's?

So...have TONS of these little acryllic shapes (hearts, flowers, birds, etc) and they are so i painted them, dry embossed in cuttlebug...painted some more, etc. AND LOVED IT! Then I found a sheet of sticky backed linen...which looked so sad next to the painted & embossed I did it to the linen...and it worked....well, i didn't paint it but might tomorrow!
