I hope you enjoyed my 12 Days of Christmas these past 12 days. It was so much fun. I thought I would mix it up a little today and show you something non-Christmas.
Have you ever used paint on your cards? It’s a really cool way of adding some “punch” to your creation. All I did on this card was to prepare a rectangular piece of Designer Paper and using an artist paintbrush and some white craft paint, outline the outside edges of my panel by pulling the paint “inwards” with my paintbrush:
If you click on either photo, you’ll be able to see a close-up of the paint I pulled in. All you need is a little dab on your artist paintbrush to almost paint “dry”. I really like to look of this technique:
My flower and the other 2 small stamp images were stamped on Sahara Sand Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and sprinkled with Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder. Heat set with your Heat Tool. All 3 images were cut out with punches: Fancy Flower Punch, 1″ Circle Punch, 3/4″ Circle Punch:
Add a few Pearl Jewels and a strip of Scallop Dots Ribbon outlined by a strip of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch and you have a cute card!
