Happy Friday everyone! Here's a wonderful Paint Fusion project using one of the newest flowers in the stamp line, a Sunflower! I used different colors on mine though. I had an assortment of yummy paints and used a combo of red and butternut. Here in Texas amongst the Sunflower patches, you will look out and see the red ones. They are a bit darker than the image on my card here, but you get the idea. I had this stunning paper with a shimmery finish and I wanted the flower I created to match the paper.
I made the card XL and tall like a legal size envelope. I can also use some of the yummy pink shimmery paper with my Ultimate Tool to make a perfectly sized matching envelope! To create this project, first I used one of the recycled ATC chipboards, created a background with a crackle finish; I stamped the images onto it using white Stazon Ink, painted my flower and parts of the leaves. Then I used the stamps as background images for my card (they work great just like any rubber stamp would. You can use these stamps just for ordinary stamping too!) Finally, I mounted my painted art onto the card.
What a wonderful way to share your tiny painted masterpiece!
Cheers all! Holley
