got paint?

Hello, my friends.  I painted today.  On my card, which I made for the Inspiration Journal challenge IEMC05.    The challenge was all about using paint on your project.

I started with a kiwi kiss card base.  First I swiped on some white acrylic paint with a sponge brush.  After allowing that to dry, I stamped my flower image (Local King Rubber Stamps) with jet black stazon ink and then painted the image with twinkling h2o's and a water brush.

I picked up a piece of purple scrap and was going to punch both sides, but on the third punch down one side, my punch broke.  Although I've had the punch for years, I think this might be only the second time I've used it, so I guess that wasn't a great loss.  So, anyway, on to plan B. I sponged the edges with perfect plum ink, and then used a ribbon punch from SU to punch the green strip, sponged the edges with always artichoke ink and added that on top of the purple strip.

I distressed the right edge of the card and sponged over the roughened edge with always artichoke ink.  I stamped the sentiment with black stazon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Have a great evening.
