Mixed Media Cards - a small attempt

I have so much paint I don't know what to do with so I thought I would try painting my cards before I decorate them. A little mixed media (very little).
Products used:
White acrylic paint
My sewing machine and white thread.
I think I will paint on a thick layer next time or try a different colour and see what is looks like.
Be happy!
