Default Decorating with Big Blossom?

Have any of you decorated the walls with Big Blossom? We just fixed up my 3 year old daughter's bedroom into a girly girl room. It still needs something as a finishing touch. A friend suggested using Big Blossoms stamped randomly on the walls near the top, sort of like a border. I'm afraid to try this but would any of you advise doing this? Do we use acrylic paint on the stamp? Thanks for any advice!

That looks great!!!! Thanks so much for sharing. I'm going to do something like this. I wonder if Acrylic Paint will work just as good or does it have to be wall paint? Hmm... thinking of doing it in purple and pink. The walls are light tan ( not planning on painting the entire walls just yet)

Interior wall paint is an acrylic base so there is a very good chance it would work. The only thing is that the crafting acrylic paint is going to be exponentially more expensive than wall paint. Not sure how many you plan on stamping but if it is alot, probably cheaper to buy paint at HD or Lowes, and you'll also have comfort in knowing that paint will indeed work.

I've stamped on my walls in a couple of rooms. I used craft paint in my bedroom, and reg wall paint in my bathroom. They both worked fine. A couple of things to remember, if you are really picky about keeping the wood of your stamps clean, cover it with painters tape, no matter how careful you think you are some drips will happen. Also paint is very slippery, so becareful when you stamp on the wall because it can slide. Once you get the hang of it, it really is fun. Good luck.

Oh, also I found it easiest for me to apply the paint to the stamp with one of the cheap foam craft brushes.
