Make it Monday - Stamping with Acrylic Paint

I was so inspired by the fabulous video this week from Papertrey on stamping with paint.  I went through my stash and found some gold paint and grabbed a makeup sponge.  My new set Harvest Berries was perfect for this.  I love the combination of Ocean Tides and gold.  Yum!

 I used the Harvest Berries die for some dark chocolate and gold texture and overlaid a Fillable Frames #4 die cut with some foam dots.  I found the perfect sentiment from Modern Wood Mats and made sure to edge the frame and ocean tides cardstock cover with the gold as well.
I think somehow the colour combination reminds me of Tiffany with the gold and turquoise, although it's usually lighter.  Canada used to have a gorgeous home decor store that was an offshoot of Club Monaco called Caban that always used the turquoise and chocolate brown combo .. love it!
I think this shot might show the amazing shine better.  Hard to capture on camera, especially at 10:30 at night! :)  Ah, well ... you get the idea!
Supplies all PTI unless noted:
Paper: Ocean Tides, Chocolate, white card base
Stamps: Harvest Berries, Modern Wood Mats' sentiment
Ink: gold paint (Plaid)
Misc: Harvest Berries and Fillable Frames #4 dies, foam dots
