MFP TTSTV Challenge 23 11-9-2012

This week on Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.'s Tutorial Time on SpeedyTV, Debbie Moran gave us a fun tutorial on how to use bubble wrap on your cards!  I hadn't used acrylic paints much before at all, but had a grand time playing with them for this background.
Check out Debbie's tutorial on how to use bubble wrap on your cards over at TTSTV and then click on the TTSTV tab and then challenge 23!  It really was a fun tutorial using the acrylic paints!  And, there is an awesome stamp set going to the winner!  So, get your paints out and drop your cards off!
