...paint and paper everywhere (sorry, you probably need to be British and have had Victorian era music hall songs pushed at you during your education for that!).
It's Challenge Chicks day at Cornish Heritage Farms and today's challenge focuses on Adirondack paint dabbers. I'll confess right now that I own the sum total of one dabber (Snowcap) but it's probably the nicest acrylic paint I've come across so even without the aid of a crystal ball I see more in my future.
The paint is thick and the foam dabber top makes it easy to apply to your stamps. To continue with the theme of the opening song... unlike father papering the parlour, it's definitely not going to go everywhere, it's very easy to control. The only word of caution is that it's best to clean up your stamp promptly as the paint does tend to dry quickly on there and it's easier to remove before it dries.
I've not yet found a white ink that I'm really happy with the coverage of so for me, this white dabber seemed like the perfect choice to do a white-on-black card. I also used it to paint the chipboard letters. The pointing finger is a sticker; you could also use a dingbat font to print out and cut round yourself. Raising it on foam pads lets you overlap the finger tip and the chipboard lettering a little.
Stamps: AlphaNumber backgrounder (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Ink: Adirondack Paint Dabber - Snowcap
Paper: Epic Laid Black (Prism) and smooth white
Other: chipboard letters (Maya Road), sticker (Office Daisy Dots by Heartwarming Vintage/Crafty Secrets), foam pads
