Make it Monday, #123 Making Your Own Paint

Well, this was a challenge, seeing as how I don't have any gesso, and only a few re-inkers... But in searching through my supplies, I found some Adirondack Silver Metallic acrylic paint, which I mixed with green ink for the leaves and some pink ink for the petals (Lovely Layers stamps). For the background, I used Fabulous Frames to die cut the Polaroid frame, first stamping it with Superstripes in Versamark and then rubbing Perfect Pearls over it. The whole thing is pretty shiny in real life :)

All stamps, dies and paper are PTI. Thanks for looking!
