PAINTED FLOWER CARD

There is so much that can be created with these Prima Paintable papers. The whole piece, of course, or just zero in on one section.

For this card I picked out one of the more prominent flowers and cut it out. Next, I used my Watercolor crayons and my Watercolor brush to add color to the cut out design. Another plus to this paper is how much water and painting it will take. It is a great watercolor paper all on its own.

I decided to make this a two tone flower and when the green areas were dry, I went over them with the Diamond Glitter Dimensional Fabric paint. What I really like about this particular form of "glitter glue" is that you can still see the underneath color when it is dry. I coated the leaves with green Stickles. I choose that kind of "glitter glue" for that area because of the intense amount of glitter that you get when it dries. The green portions of this flower already had what look like typed letters or words on them. I added to that look with some stamped images on the card itself to help tie all of this together and to give my card a theme.


In this close up you can get a better idea of the glitter look that was added.
