Flowers of Paint and Ink

I made this card using a technique I saw on Pinterest, painting the petals of a flower with white craft paint and a water brush  and after drying, coming back over the paint with ink from a reinker, also applied with the water brush (I used Stampin Up Regal Rose)...
I dotted the middles of the flowers with Enamel Accents.  What a fun, relaxing time I had.  The only thing that is IMPORTANT in this technique is to make sure that when you paint with the white paint, you need to make sure you stay in the lines...otherwise the ink will feel free to go over the lines, too...and makes for a blurry look with the petal's lines.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  9. Beautiful card!! Thanks for sharing the technique. I do have a silly question, tho. When you say "white craft paint" is that just plain ol' white acrylic paint? It seems that would be too thick. The waterbrush "softens" it?

  10. Hi Julie!
    Yes, the water from the brush gives you more or less of the white…only used a small dot of paint for the whole card…a little goes a long way:)!! Here's a link to the site on which I found this technique on pinterest:http://www.pattystamps.typepad.com/pattys_stamping_spot/2013/06/white-craft-ink-watercolor-technique.html
    Shows the process:)!! Hugs!!
