Besides my paper passion I enjoy painting. Not pictures on canvas or anything like that (though it's still tempting) but painting walls, cabinets, benches... you get the point. Color makes me smile. Unfortunately, I don't get to do it often. So what's a girl to do when you can't paint walls?
You paint paper!!!
For this card I used Making Memories colors. I thought it would be a fun and different way to add detail and color. I was afraid the paper would bend and wrinkle up but it didn't (Papertrey Ink card stock for ya, my favorite ;) I used a sponge and painted away in three different colors. For the embellie I made a random cut flower and finished it with a stem, leaf and button ( I would've preferred a different color for the button just to balance the colors a bit more). For the sentiment I used a rub-on.
So next time I feel an urge to open a can of paint I'll go into my craft room instead and create something a bit more simple ;)
Thanks for stopping!!
