Comb-overs for Cool People

We're still being Dirty Girls over on Splitcoast, and the challenge cards are AMAZING!!
I got to make a sample for Julie's Dirty Challenge, so I put one of the techniques I learned in Claudine Hellmuth's online class to work!

Her class - At Home with Claudine - is so much fun. We are doing new techniques each week, hanging out with her animals, getting to see her studio, playing with new products. Very nicely done.

Last week we did this combed background technique, where we mixed her Extra Time slow drying medium with acrylic paint, painted it on glossy paper, and then used a comb to make patterns in the paint. I'm thinking that this "comb-over" technique might be something Donald Trump should look into rather than trying to use what's left of his actual hair. You decide - does my card look better than his head?

The stamp is from Technique Tuesday - it's a cool set with a bunch of different petals and centers.
