´╗┐Acrylic Paint Distress by April Williams

A fantastic background using acrylic paints and inks.


  1. white cardstock
  2. one or two colors of acrylic paint daubers
  3. embossing folder ( I used a paisley folder )
  4. sanding block
  5. darker ink than paint ( I used purple ink )
  6. finger sponge dauber

Using your acrylic paint dauber, spread the ink all over the cardstock.  Let dry.

Run painted piece through an embossing folder.

Lightly sand the raised embossed areas with the sanding block.

With a sponge finger dauber, sponge ink onto sanded areas, leaving some white showing here and there.

I also tried another piece using kraft cardstock and two colors of paint. Here is the result.

I hope you enjoy this technique as much as I do.  Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day!
