Acrylic Icing

Somehow the acrylic on this card looks like frosting to me.  I first placed white acrylic on a piece of wax paper, folded it and then applied the thin layer of paint to the postcard.  It left a nice shape.  I then put a bit of white and blue together and went around the edges with it trying to retain the white shape in the center.  Once it dried I colored lightly over the textured white paint with orange crayon.  Enjoy the beautiful weather out there!
