Up Up

I had a bit of fun with some paint I found on clearance at Walmart.

I just brushed paint on the patterned paper.

After assembling, I trimmed the excess from the card and added it as an embellishment.

(Include some painting/coloring)

It is a rainy, gloomy day here...but since our air conditioning is down~I'll take it!  

It means more indoor craft time since outside chores have to wait. ;)

Have a blessed day friends!

  2. Lovely brushed BG you created and loving the torn paper too. Thanks for joining us for this month's Diva Dare!

  3. Such a pretty card, Marlena! You always have such interesting approaches to your cards! Not in a zillion years would I think of this brushed-with-pain technique, never mind making a card as stunning as yours! Perfect for the Verve Diva Challenge!
    Hope the rain and gloom have lifted and the sun is shining. Our forecast is for unusually warm here (30+ Celsius)...I'm not exactly a happy camper when it's hot, but I try to be cheery (sort of, despite the swelter-fest..) Have a fantastic evening!


Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to stop in! ;)
