A Skirted Pleat

I wanted to do one more card for  

This time, it is more a turquoise hue than teal.

With my box-pleat technique...I was able to make this skirt.

This time, I used a thick DP and painted it.  

You can see the original design within the pleats.
I pinched the "valleys" from behind, while I painted with DecoArt Americana asphaltum (brown) acrylic paint.

The decorated "plateaus" were stamped with a BoBunny wave stamp on separate pieces and applied to the skirt.

I wasn't taking any chances.  ;)

It was inked with light mocha and stamped first and then repeated with Scribbles turquoise 3D paint.

As long as you apply the 3D paint with a sponge brush, it will stamp flat.

  I really like the shimmery color!

I hope you like it. ;)


Thanks for stopping by. ;)
