For the Heart 2 Heart Challenge this week, we are supposed to showcase a technique, any technique we would like to show. To see all the projects, see the challenge here.
I decided to show stamping on paint. I really enjoy this technique and it's easy to do, as long as one is patient. Here is my project:
I made this card for a friend of mine who is having a really hard time right now. I am hoping this will brighten her day.
For this technique, mix a small amount of Create-A-Shade paint with any reinker of choice. I chose sorbet and juniper. Paint the tinted paint onto cardstock and let dry completely. This will take a few hours. Once dry, stamp image of choice onto the painted cardstock. I chose the flower from the stamp set Aspiration (C1340) and the stem and leaves from an old set From Me To You (D1247). I stamped them with regular black ink. Stayz-On ink can also be used for faster results. The regular ink takes a very long time to set. I stamped the flowers and cut them out. I stamped the stem and leaves on the background, and then some extra leaves that I cut out.
I love the shimmer that the paint gives to the paper. The ribbon is actually a very pretty colonial white ribbon, but it looks really dark in the pictures.
The center flower and the leaves are raised. I also filled in the dots on the center flower with a black marker and then highlighted with liquid glass.
