My card uses the Retro Beach set.
This set, although used here on a card, is ideal for so many different types of projects including ATC's, scrapbooking and background stamping in art journals.



This Retro Beach set was so much fun to use!
The background for this was a play with Fresco Finish paints, using my fingers to apply...
and then using bubble wrap to add another layer.
The background has images from the set, stamped onto tissue paper and applied to the painty back drop.
Finishing with a little layering of some random images from the set.

The discovery for me this time is how awesome the bubble wrap is after you have used it a few times and the paint has dried.  It hardens up and has some really interesting effects.
(yes, it's the little things - always!)
