Waiting on pictures and playing with paint

Now I am terribly inspired to play with techniques. Last night, I thought to myself, "if I painted on paper, what ink could I use to stamp an image on top of the paint?" Today, I tried it. I used my Ranger Paint Dabbers in light green (willow). And I used some DecoArt acrylic white to see what I could pull off. Then I used Autumn Leaves Stampology ink pad in Onyx. And it worked! Thus another round of thank you cards was born. Here are the pictures to prove it.

Of course, I could not have pulled this off without a good sketch. This week CardPatterns has such a fun sketch. I enjoyed playing with it and keeping it simple. I kept wanting to add to the card, but I decided to stick with the sketch and leave it alone. Frankly, I think the cards are better for it.

For those people who are following my paper hoarding problem, I am finally using it up. I have been holding onto this October Afternoon Cherry Hill Tea Towel paper for over a year. In fact, this is one of five sheets I own. Time to pull out and use it because...they are all special projects. No sense waiting on the ultimate project as there will always be more paper!


  1. How sweet! I love that twine you added. So glad you could play along with us on Card Patterns this week!
