Product Review-Viva 3D stamp paint

I reviewed Viva's 3D Stamp Paint on the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog today. On this finished project I used it with a stencil to make the border and I mixed some with a bit of water and used it as a mist to get the light blue tint on the white cardstock. You should try some.
This LO documents the home arrival of my garage sale recliner. DD and SIL are so awesome.
