I stamped the walls of my twin girls' room with DD Bold Butterfly and DD Blooming Wonderful. Two walls in the room are yellow; two are blue. I only stamped on one blue wall and one yellow wall. On the other half of this wall, the stamps are lower, at the girls' level.

This is great!!! ok let me get this straight!!! You used acrylic paints from Wal-Mart, did you put the paint in a cookie sheet or something? just dip it in then stamp in the wall??? I love this it looks like soo much fun!

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments! Melony, I put a little bit of paint on a disposable plate. Then I used those sponges on a stick to sponge paint onto the stamp, then stamped the wall. The acrylic paint is too thick to dip the stamp into directly. It doesn't take much paint. I did have to press hard since the walls are textured. A few times I messed up, and I immediately wiped it off with a damp cloth and then tried again. It took me a while to get up the courage to get started on this project, but once I did, the girls got all excited and then it was easy to just keep working on it. They really do love it!
