There was a really fun New Techniques challenge over on Splitcoaststampers today. Painting with Cardboard. Judy shared a YouTube Video with us showing just what this was all about!
I'm already in Easter mode - Easter is early this year, April 1 - and two friends and I make cards to sell at church.
I made two cards using the technique - using different colors and I have a few photos to show how I made them.
You start out by taking an empty toilet paper roll and cutting a fringe on one end. Bend the fringe back and pounce the fringe into the acrylic paint (lightest first) and press it onto your card panel. You repeat the process with the same color until you have the look you want, then you go to the next darker color and finish with the darkest color.
For my blue card - I used PaperArtsy Haystack, Guacamole, and Sky. This shows the panel after applying my first color.
And here is is with all 3 of the colors.
After I made the panel above, I added a little water with my paintbrush to the ink circles on my nonstick sheet and was able to 'stamp' another panel - it came out a little lighter.
Then I cleaned up my mat, made a new toilet paper roll 'brush' and used two different paints to make another panel. Here I used PaperArtsy Tango and Zesty Zing.
I made two panels of these colors as well - and here they are all done.
As soon as I saw the lovely 'bursts' this technique created I knew I wanted to use this He is Risen stamp on them.
I added 3 white sequins to each card and framed them in two of the colors used on the design and then adhered it all to a white card base.
I'm linking my card to:
